Pulkit Grover is an assistant professor in the Department of Electical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. He recieved his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 2010. He focuses on interdisciplinary research directed towards developing a science of information for understanding/designing energy-efficient and stable decentralized systems (from low-power communication/computation systems, to large control, computational, and biological systems). He is the recipient of an NSF CAREER Award (2014), the best paper award at the International Symposium on Integrated Circuits (ISIC), the best student paper award at the IEEE Conference in Decision and Control (CDC) 2010, and the 2012 Leonard G. Abraham best paper award from the IEEE Communications Society for his work on energy-efficient communication. For his dissertation research, he received the 2011 Eli Jury Award from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley.
He was a co-editor of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (JSAC) special issues on "Energy Harvesting and Wirelessly Powered Communications" (2014-15).
