Linda Katehi is the Chancellor Emerita and a Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Davis.

As Chancellor, Linda Katehi oversaw all aspects of the university’s teaching, research and public service mission. Under her leadership, she advanced a number of crucial initiatives that have enhanced UC Davis’ reputation for excellence, including the 2020 Initiative, the UC Davis ADVANCE program, the establishment of the UC Davis World Food Center, and the university’s first-ever $1.13 billion comprehensive fundraising campaign - One UC Davis.

Previously, Linda Katehi served as provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; the John A. Edwardson Dean of Engineering and professor of electrical and computer engineering at Purdue University; and associate dean for academic affairs and graduate education in the College of Engineering and professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of Michigan.

Since her early years as a faculty member, Linda Katehi has focused on expanding research opportunities for undergraduates and improving the education and profes­sional experience of graduate students, with an emphasis on underrepresented groups. She has mentored more than 70 postdoctoral fellows, doctoral and master’s students in electrical and computer engineering. Twenty-three of the 44 doctoral students who graduated under her supervision have become faculty members in research universities in the United States and abroad.

Her work in electronic circuit design has led to numerous national and international awards both as a technical leader and educator, 19 U.S. patents, and several additional U.S. patent applications. She is the author or co-author of 10 book chapters and about 650 refereed publications in journals and symposia proceedings.

A member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), she chaired until 2010 the President’s Committee for the National Medal of Science and the Secretary of Commerce’s committee for the National Medal of Technology and Innova­tion.

She is a fellow of the American Association for the Advance­ment of Science (AAAS), a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, and a founding member of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI).

Katehi is also a member of many other national boards, committees and local nonprofits. In 2015, she was awarded the National Academy of Engineering Simon Ramo Founders Award. Katehi was the first woman to be honored with this award.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, in 1977, and her master’s and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering from UCLA in 1981 and 1984, respectively.

Research

Dr. Linda Katehi pioneered the development and implementation of Unified Theory and Design Algorithms for the simultaneous design of high frequency 3-D Integrated Circuits and Antennas. In this development she pioneered the methodology to treat 3-D circuits as radiating elements at discontinuities and interconnects thereby allowing the accurate modeling of cross talk and substrate material effects. To achieve this goal she “cracked” for the first time the solution of Integral Equations with improper integrands. Her contributions with this part of her work have had and are having a fundamental impact in communication technologies such as in 3-D integrated circuit and antenna design, especially for wireless communications.

Sustainability in the 4th industrial revolution

This blog explores early signs of a new revolution, the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It examines the internet, the cloud, robotics and multiculturalism as drivers of change. 

The changes that are foreseen coming are so fundamental that there is only one hypothesis to embrace. There is a new industrial revolution that is coming so strong, so encompassing and unforgiving that we should prepare to drive it but not be driven by it.

This blog has been developed with the goal to allow viewers to receive updated information and express their opinions freely. Contributors are encouraged to express their views with dignity and respect and be ready to defend their ideas.
