Fellow, Alexander Graham Bell Medal Recipient "The world of engineering is advancing so rapidly that under-developed and partially developed countries have difficulty implementing and using the technology advancements of the developed world," according to Prof. Arogyaswami Paulraj, Professor Emeritus at Stanford University. But he believes IEEE and the IEEE Foundation, with numerous experienced members and retirees, can help close the technology gap. A recipient of the Alexander Graham Bell Medal and the Marconi Prize, Arogyaswami served in the Indian Navy for 25 years, where he gained basic engineering training. He learned of IEEE whilst working on his PhD at IIIT Delhi in 1969. He joined IEEE in 1984 when he was a visiting scientist at Stanford University and attended IEEE events where he realized that IEEE is "the place for research publications, conferences, and standards." Arogyaswami and his wife support several science and technology causes and institutions including IEEE. They believe, "giving back to IEEE is a way of giving forward to future generations. Specifically, they give to the Claude Shannon 100th Birthday Celebration Fund. Shannon made crucial contributions to the information sciences and Prof. Paulraj hopes the documentary will inspire both current and future engineers. Paulraj appreciates IEEE's work to reach under-served populations and women to attract them to careers in engineering. As a retiree himself, he also welcomes IEEE's outreach to retired engineers to advance the work of IEEE.

In 1999, Paulraj founded Iospan Wireless Inc. and the company was acquired by Intel Corp in 2003. Iospan pioneered MIMO-OFDMA used in 4G technology. In 2003, Paulraj co-founded Beceem Communications Inc. which became the leader in 4G /WIMAX chip sets. Beceem was acquired by Broadcom Corp. in 2010. Paulraj is an ISI Thomson most highly cited researcher with two textbooks on MIMO. He has published over 350 archival papers and a co-inventor in over 63 patents. He has graduated over 50 doctoral and post-doctoral students at Stanford. Paulraj has over 30 recognitions which include the 2014 Marconi Prize and the 2011 IEEE Alexander Graham Bell medal. He is a member of eight national academies including the US National Academy of Engineering, the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences and The World Academy of Sciences. He is a fellow of IEEE andAAAS. He has received a number of recognitions in India including the Padma Bhushan, the nation's third highest civilian honor. Paulraj is a Visiting Professor at the Beijing Institute of Posts and Telecommunications, Beijing and the Imperial College, London and a Distinguished Professor at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras.
