Rick Johnson, an engineering professor on the Hill—and, at the risk of a mixed metaphor, something of a Renaissance man. At Cornell since 1981, Johnson has spent decades teaching and doing research in electrical engineering, particularly in the fields of control systems and signal processing. But over the past twelve years, his interests have entailed as much art as science. A pioneer in the field of computational art history, Johnson leverages both his engineering acumen and his abiding passion for art to study the physical materials with which works are made.

Vikram Krishnamurthy moves to Ithaca Campus
Cornell University's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) is pleased to announce Professor Vikram Krishnamurthy’s move to the Ithaca Campus from Cornell Tech.
Krishnamurthy will continue his research in statistical signal processing, stochastic control & optimization with applications in socio/economic networks and adaptive sensing. He will be teaching a new graduate course in Bayesian Estimation and Stochastic optimization starting in Fall 2019.
Krishnamurthy is the author of the books, “Dynamics of Engineered Artificial Membranes and Biosensors” (2018) and “Partially Observed Markov Decision Processes: Filtering to Controlled Sensing” (2016) both published by Cambridge University Press. Krishnamurthy has given plenary talks at several international conferences including International Conference on Information Fusion-2011, IEEE-Control and Decision Conference 2011, and GameNets 2016. He has graduated 25 Ph.D. students, with many of them hold leading positions in academia and industry.
Prior to joining Cornell in 2016, Krishnamurthy was a Canada Research Chair professor at University of British Columbia. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and was awarded an honorary doctorate from the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. He was a Distinguished Lecturer for IEEE Signal Processing Society and Editor in Chief of IEEE Journal Selected Topics in Signal Processing and served as Technical program committee chair for ICSASSP 2013. Krishnamurthy is also with Center for Applied Math at Cornell University.
Krishnamurthy was elected Fellow of IEEE in 2004. In 2009-2010, he served as Distinguished lecturer for the IEEE Signal Processing Society. From 2010-2012, he served as Editor in Chief of IEEE Journal Selected Topics in Signal Processing. He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) Sweden in 2014, Canada Research Chair (2002-2016).
