Indian engineer receives IEEE Graham Bell Medal
In its award statement, the IEEE's Board of Directors said that in its efforts to recognize "exceptional achievements in our profession," Dr. Paulraj was selected for pioneering contributions to the application of multiantenna technology to wireless communications systems.
Dr. Paulraj, a co-founder of Beceem Communications Inc., which Broadcom acquired last month, is a pioneer in MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) wireless technology, which relies on multiple radio antennas as both the transmitter and receiver to improve communications performance. An emeritus professor at Stanford University, where he supervises the Smart Antennas Research Group, Dr. Paulraj will continue as a senior technical advisor to Broadcom.
Dr. Paulraj is the author of two text books and more than 400 research papers and is an inventor on 50 plus U.S. patents. His IEEE recognitions include the Technical Achievement Award and several best paper awards. He is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World and several other national academies in Sweden and India. He has also won more than a dozen national awards in India, including the Padma Bhushan, one of India's highest civilian awards. He serves on several company advisory boards, university councils, and government committees in the U.S. and India.
