Nilanjan Ray Chaudhuri is an assistant professor in electrical engineering. He received his Master of Technology degree form Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, India and Ph.D. from Imperial College London. Both of these are in Power Systems. Prior to joining Penn State, Ray Chaudhuri was an assistant professor at North Dakota State University and before that, a lead engineer at General Electric’s Global Research Center in Niskayuna, New York. His research interests include power system dynamics and control, wide-area monitoring systems, application of power electronics in power systems, online system identification, FACTS, HVDC, renewable energy systems, distributed energy, and demand side response. Dr. Ray Chaudhuri is the recipient of the National Science Foundation Early Faculty CAREER Award in 2016.

Swaroop Ghosh is an assistant professor in electrical engineering and computer science and engineering. He received his M.S. in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Cincinnati and his Ph.D. from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University. Before coming to Penn State, he was an assistant professor of computer science and engineering at the University of South Florida and prior to that, he was a development engineer in Advanced Design at Intel Corporation. His research interests include the low-power circuit design, hardware security and digital testing. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers and the recipient of a DARPA Young Faculty Award (2015).

Ting He is an associate professor in computer science and engineering. She received her B.S. in computer science from Peking University in China and her Ph.D. from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell University. Prior to joining the faculty in EECS at Penn State, she was a research scientist in Network Analytics at IBM’s Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York. Her research spans statistical inference, information theory, control theory, online learning, and graph theory. Her research aims to apply techniques from fundamental theory to network monitoring and optimization in emerging networking scenarios.

Jing Yang is an assistant professor in electrical engineering. She received her B.S. electronic engineering and information science from the University of Science and Technology of China and her Ph.D. in in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park. Before joining Penn State, Yang was an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Arkansas. Her current research interests include wireless communications and networking, information theory, statistical signal processing and statistical learning. She received an NSF CAREER award in 2015.

About

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was created in the spring of 2015 to allow greater access to courses offered by both departments for undergraduate and graduate students in exciting collaborative research in fields.

We offer B.S. degrees in electrical engineering, computer science and computer engineering and graduate degrees (master's degrees and Ph.D.'s) in electrical engineering and computer science and engineering. EECS focuses on the convergence of technologies and disciplines to meet today’s industrial demands.
