Associate Professor

Electrical and Computer Engineering

Sujay Sanghavi is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin.

Dr. Sanghavi joined UT ECE in July 2009. He has an MS in ECE, an MS in Mathematics and a PhD in ECE from the University of Illinois; he was also a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Sujay's research interests are in statistical machine learning, using techniques from optimization, linear algebra and combinatorics. A recent focus has been on the development of algorithms that are adapted to modern big-data compute architectures, but which still retain performance guarantees.

Sujay has received the NSF CAREER award, and a Young Investigator Award from the Department of Defense. he has been a Visiting Scientist at Google Research.
