Shivkumar Kalyanaraman serves as CTO, Energy & Mobility, Microsoft R&D India (& Azure Global). Previously he was Executive GM, GE Power Conversion (e-mobility and distributed solar businesses); and earlier Program Director, Special Initiatives, IBM Research - India, Bangalore responsible for transformative innovation in renewables (esp solar), energy storage and electrified transportation. Till mid-2015 he was the
Chief Scientist, IBM Research - Australia, Melbourne, Australia.
Previously, he was Senior Manager of the Next Gen Systems &
Smarter Planet Solutions Department, and Senior Researcher at IBM
India Research Labs Bangalore; and earlier served as manager of the Next Generation
Telecom Research group and a Research Staff Member since
2008. Prior to joining IBM, he was a Professor at the Department of Electrical,
Computer and Systems Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
inTroy, NY. He received a B.Tech degree in Computer Science from the
Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India in July 1993 followed by
M.S. and Ph.D. degrees at the Ohio State University in 1994 and 1997
respectively. He also holds an Executive M.B.A. (EMBA) degree from
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (2005). His current research in IBM
is at the intersection of emerging wireless technologies and IBM
middleware and systems technologies with applications to large-scale
smarter planet problems (grids, traffic, finance etc). He was selected
by MIT's Technology Review Magazine in 1999 as one of the top 100
young innovators for the new millenium. He served as the TPC Co-chair
of IEEE INFOCOM 2008, and as the General co-chair of ACM
SIGCOMM 2010 in New Delhi. He has served on the editorial board of IEEE/ACM
Transactions of Networking. He is a Fellow of IEEE and an ACM
Distinguished Scientist, and recently named Fellow, Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE).
Outside of work, he is a author of a popular
carnatic music education web site .
After joining IBM Research in early 2008, Shiv helped establish and led world-class research teams on smarter planet technologies, networking and wireless topics at IBM Research - India. His team conducts research in high performance computing, emerging wireless technologies, IBM middleware, systems and data center networking with applications to large-scale, real-world smarter planet problems (energy, transportation, weather, flood modeling, natural resources (oil,gas,mining), agriculture etc).
Shiv was integral part of the founding leadership team that established the joint research Centre between Universiti Brunei Darussalam and IBM (UBD | IBM Centre) in Brunei at the intersection of Smarter Planet modeling and High Performance Computing, including important objectives of joint research and human capacity development for Bruneians. Shiv serves as the Co-Director of the UBD | IBM Centre.
Shiv one of the co-leads of the 2010 IBM Global technology outlook (GTO) on the Convergence of IT and Wireless Infrastructure. Since 2010, he has served as part of the global leadership team in the IT/Wireless Convergence initiative at IBM Research.
At RPI, Shiv's work was primarily in the area of computer networking,
concentrated around the theme of traffic management and high
performance wireless networking. With his collaborators and students, he has made
contributions to topics such as congestion control, reliability, connectionless traffic engineering,
quality of service (QoS), last-mile community wireless networks,
low-cost free-space-optical networks, automated network management
using online simulation, multicast, multimedia networking (including
peer-to-peer multimedia systems), and performance analysis. His special
interest was in developing interdisciplinary connections between
network architecture and fields like control theory, economics,
scalable simulation technologies, video compression and
At RPI he was affiliated with the Networking
Laboratory, Center for Pervasive Computing and Networking (CPCN),
and the Center for Image
Processing Research (CIPR) at ECSE. His former
student colleagues (list dated). The team's
external sponsors at RPI included DARPA-ITO
AT&T Labs Research , Intel Corp. (Research Council and IXA
Program), MIT Lincoln Labs (AFOSR subcontract) , and WIMAX Forum .
