Alumnus Ashok Veeraraghavan Promoted to Associate Professor at Rice University

Alumnus Ashok Veeraraghavan (M.S. ’04, Ph.D. ’08) has been promoted to Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University. 

Veeraraghavan earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in ECE from the University of Maryland in 2004 and 2008, respectively. As a student at Maryland, he was advised by Dr. Rama Chellappa, Distinguished University Professor and Chair of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
