George C. Verghese received his BTech from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in 1974, his MS from the State University of New York, Stony Brook in 1975, and his PhD from Stanford University in 1979, all in Electrical Engineering. Since 1979, he has been with MIT, where he is the Henry Ellis Warren (1894) Professor, and Professor of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering, in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He was named a MacVicar Faculty Fellow at MIT for the period 2011-2012, for outstanding contributions to undergraduate education.
Verghese is also a principal investigator with MIT’s Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE). His research interests and publications are in the areas of dynamic systems, modeling, estimation, signal processing, and control. Over the past decade, his research focus has shifted from applications in power systems and power electronics entirely to applications in biomedicine. He directs the Computational Physiology and Clinical Inference Group in RLE.
