ECE undergraduate student Mukund Ramakrishnan won the Chancellor's Research Excellence Award 2024

Mukund Ramakrishnan will receive a Chancellor's Research Excellence Award during the 9th Annual Chancellor's Student Leadership Award Gala on Wednesday, May 1, 2024. The Chancellor's Student Leadership Awards honor undergraduate and graduate students who consistently demonstrate collaboration, leadership, and resourcefulness, have a tremendous passion for Rutgers, and go outside their responsibilities to achieve goals.

Mukund was an undergraduate student in Prof. Emina Soljanin's group under this year's James J. Slade Scholars Program. His oral presentation on his thesis was the ECE representative at the JJ Slade symposium. Mukund's NSF GRFP research proposal (based on his JJ Slade thesis) has received an NSF GRFP Honorable Mention. It concerns anonymous Internet communications. Mukund's extracurricular activities are equally impressive. To mention one last week, he conducted his original piece at a conducting class recital.

Mukund will attend graduate school. He has offers from UIUC, Purdue, NYU, and other PhD programs.

Congratulations to Mukund and Emina!
