Alumnus Vikram Manikonda (ECE Ph.D. 1997) has been appointed president of Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI), Rockville, Md. He is a former advisee of Professor P.S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR).

IAI’s Board of Directors noted Manikonda’s dedication to the objectives and values of the company, his extraordinary technical strength, his outstanding performance in building enduring relationships with clients, industry and academic partners, and his demonstrated leadership. IAI founder Leonard Haynes stated “IAI could not have a better person serving in this role. His dedication to IAI, technical leadership and business values are exactly the right thing at the right time for IAI.”

As President of IAI, Dr. Manikonda will be responsible for developing and managing IAI’s technical direction and will work on long term strategic planning.
