Rohit Negi is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.  His research interests include signal processing, coding for communication systems, information theory, networking, power grid analysis. As wireless devices are needed to handle more and more sophisticated functions, their design and optimization becomes more critical. An important change in wireless technology is the transition from voice-centric communications to data-related communications. The design of systems now requires a closer integration of the physical layer and the medium access layer. This eventually touches all aspects of physical layer communications, including modulation, coding and multiple access, as well as the lower layers of networking.

Rohit Negi received the B.Tech. degree in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, in 1995. He received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University, CA, in 1996 and 2000, respectively, both in electrical engineering. Since 2000, he has been with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, where he is a Professor. Dr. Negi received the President of India Gold Medal in 1995.
