Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Sachin Katti recently won the 2013 SIGCOMM Rising Star Award.
This award recognizes a young researcher, an individual no older than 35, who has made outstanding research contributions to the field of communication networks during this early part of his or her career.
According to SIGCOMM, "The award is in recognition of outstanding research contributions, early in his career, in wireless communications and networking. His approach to cross-layer wireless design brings together computer networking, signal processing and information theory to solve long-standing problems in wireless networks. Highlights of his research contributions include a practical approach to achieve full-duplex radios (Mobicom'10, MOBICOM'11, SIGCOMM'13) and rateless network design for practical adapation of sender transmission rate (SIGCOMM'11, MOBICOM'12). To quote from his nomination 'Sachin Katti’s research has transformed the way we think about wireless communications.'"
