PhD candidate Shobha Vasudevan has accepted an offer from the University of Illinois for an assistant professor position. UIUC is included among the nation's top few research institutions and the ECE department has maintained a reputation of excellence and world class research for the past many decades, says Ms. Vasudevan. I am very excited and will be starting sometime in Fall 2007.
Ms. Vasudevan was advised by Dr. Jacob Abraham and was selected from over 250 candidates. Her research is concentrated on formal verification of hardware.
She has some advice for graduate students interested in faculty positions:The journey through grad school, from a diffident incoming grad student in 2001 to a professor in a top flight institution, has been a tough but rewarding one.
