Viveck Cadambe is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Cadambe received his Ph.D from the University of California, Irvine in 2011. Between 2011 and 2014, he was a postdoctoral researcher, jointly with the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Boston University, and the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Dr. Cadambe is a recipient of the 2009 IEEE Information Theory Society Best Paper Award, the 2014 IEEE International Symposium on Network Computing and Applications (NCA) Best Paper Award and the 2016 NSF Career Award. His research involves understanding of modern data communication and storage systems using the tools of information theory and coding theory.
