Engineering Grad Student Earns ICMC and ASC Best Paper Award Two Years in a Row

They say lightning never strikes in the same place twice. For Srikar Telikapalli, a graduate student in electrical engineering, that theory doesn’t hold—at least when it comes to awards. 

“I’m very fortunate to receive these awards, I can whole heartedly say that this was a group effort,” Telikapalli said. “The support provided to me by my adviser Dr. Pamidi and my mentors Dr. Cheetham and Dr. Kim, my colleagues at the HTS lab in CAPS and the college this would not be possible.”
