Biography:
Kishan Baheti handles the areas of Control and Sensor Networks in the Power, Controls and Adaptive Networks (PCAN) Program in ECS.

Dr. Baheti received the B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering in India from VRCE Nagpur, and from BITS Pilani, respectively. In 1970, he came to USA and received M.S. in Information and Computer Science from University of Oklahoma and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Oregon State University. In 1976, Dr. Baheti joined the Control Engineering Laboratory of GE Corporate Research and Development Center in Schenectady, NY. His work focused on advanced multivariable control for jet engines, signal and image processing systems, computer- aided control system design, vision-based robots for precision welding, model-based fault identification and parallel implementation of Kalman filters. Dr. Baheti and his colleagues received IR-100 award for robotic welding vision system. He has organized a series of educational workshops for GE engineers that resulted in innovative product developments and contributed to enhance university collaborations with GE business divisions. In 1989, Dr.Baheti joined NSF as a Program Director in the Division of Electrical and Communications Systems. His contributions include the development of NSF initiatives on "Combined Research and Curriculum Development", "Semiconductor Manufacturing", and NSF/EPRI Initiative on "Intelligent Control". He was instrumental in the development of NSF Initiative on "Research Experience for Teachers" to involve middle and high school teachers in engineering research that can be transferred to pre-college classrooms. Recently he is involved in networked control systems, sensor and actuator networks, imaging and computational video, micro and nano systems, medical robotics, science of learning, and dynamics and control of biological and medical systems. He has served as associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, member of the Control Systems Board of Governors, chair for Public Information Committee, and awards chair for the American Automatic Control Council (AACC). He received "Distinguished Member Award" from the IEEE Control Systems Society. In 1997, he was elected a Fellow of IEEE.
