Anyone who knows me knows I am passionate about innovation and its implementation. One of our key responsibilities as a public research institution is to address our great global challenges.

Professor and chair of the UW’s Department of Electrical Engineering and director of the Applied Computational Engineering Laboratory, Vikram Jandhyala, one of the UW’s brightest innovators and entrepreneurs gave the keynote address to a group of Taiwan Huskies at a special reception focused on the UW’s banner year in innovation and entrepreneurship.

Dr. Jandhyala is at the fore of the UW’s commercialization progress. An avid researcher, he has published more than 150 papers. He lectures regularly on computational electromagnetics, signal and power integrity, electronic design automation and entrepreneurship, a subject he knows very well. Dr. Jandhyala is a founder and chairman of Nimbic, Inc., a cloud-based, venture-funded startup in electronic design automation, as well as a Presidential Entrepreneurial Faculty Fellow in the UW’s Center for Commercialization.
