Dr. Renuka P. Jindal
Renuka P. Jindal received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1981 with minors in Physics and Material Science. Upon graduation, he joined Bell Laboratories at Murray Hill, New Jersey. His experience at Bell Labs for over 22 years bridged both technical and administrative roles. On the technical side he worked in all three areas of devices, circuits and systems. Highlights include fundamental studies of noise behavior of nanoscale MOS devices, design of high-performance Gigahertz-band RF integrated circuits and physics of low-noise signal amplification and detection including optoelectronic integration. On the administrative side he developed and deployed a corporate-wide manufacturing test strategy in relation to contract manufacturing for Lucent Technologies. In addition, he established and taught RF IC design courses at Rutgers University. In Fall of 2002 Dr. Jindal joined University of Louisiana at Lafayette as William and Mary Hansen Hall Board of Regents Eminent Scholar Endowed Chair. His academic interests include teaching and fundamental research using an end-to-end approach from devices to circuits to systems in relation to modern wireless and lightwave communications.
In 1985 Dr. Jindal became a senior member of IEEE. He received the Distinguished Technical Staff Award from Bell Labs in 1989. In 1991, he was elected Fellow of the IEEE for his contributions to the field of solid-state device noise theory and practice. In December 2000 he received the IEEE 3rd Millennium medal. From 1987 to 1989 he served as editor of the solid-state device phenomena section of IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices. In 1990 he was named Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices. From 2000 to 2008 he served as the Vice-President of Publications for the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS). In December 2007 he was voted in as President-Elect of EDS. From 2010 to 2011 Dr. Jindal served as President of the IEEE Electron Devices Society. Now, he continues to be actively involved with the Society as Junior Past President. Starting January 2013, he is also the founding editor-in-chief of the Open Access IEEE Journal of Electron Devices Society. He has also participated in ABET activities as an evaluator for Electrical Engineering programs at institutions in the United States.
