Pas Pasupathy: Meeting Challenges Head On
IEEE Life Fellow and Toronto Section member, Prof. Subbarayan "Pas" Pasupathy, was recently profiled in the IEEE publication "The Institute":
"A lunch with co-workers and perhaps a fancy watch or a piece of luggage are typical retirement gifts for many people. But those weren’t adequate to mark the career of IEEE Life Fellow Subbarayan “Pas” Pasupathy. Instead, his students and colleagues at the University of Toronto, in Canada, devoted an all-day workshop to honor his contributions as teacher, pioneering researcher, and international authority on wireless digital communications, detection and estimation theory, and biomedical signal processing."
