EE Alum Prof. Ness Shroff Wins IEEE INFOCOM Achievement Award

June 25, 2014

Professor Ness Shroff of the Ohio State University (OSU) College of Engineering has been awarded the IEEE INFOCOM Achievement Award. Professor Shroff holds the Ohio Eminent Scholar Chaired Professorship of Networking and Communications at the OSU Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. He joined OSU's faculty in 2007 after thirteen successful years at Purdue University. Dr. Shroff earned his PhD in 1994 from the Electrical Engineering department while working with now Professor Emeritus Mischa Schwartz.

Professor Schwartz states that as any other teacher he is, "proud of the accomplishments of his former students. I am clearly very proud that Ness Shroff has been honored with this prestigious INFOCOM award. One could see such an award coming: there are references, for example, to his work on expanding the capability of wireless networks in the literature of 4G-LTE. He and his students, both at Purdue and at Ohio State, have done exemplary and forward-looking work on wireless networks and on Internet activities in general."
