APL Names New Head of Research and Tech Development Center

By Michael Buckley
Applied Physics Laboratory

The Applied Physics Laboratory has named Bharat T. Doshi to head its Research and Technology Development Center and its Science and Technology Business Area.

Doshi, the Gupta Chair of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, assumes his new positions on June 5. He will lead a department that conducts innovative advanced research with broad applications across all APL programs, and develops technologies of interest to the Lab's current and potential sponsors in the Department of Defense, NASA and other government agencies.

Doshi is an internationally recognized authority in optical and wireless networking technologies, Internet protocols and architectures, speech technologies and signal processing, and network design and analysis algorithms and tools. He is a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers and a Bell Laboratories Fellow. He has been awarded 40 patents, published more than 120 technical papers, served on advisory boards to U.S. government agencies and edited several technical journals.

This will be Doshi's second tour at APL, where from 2003 to 2005 he worked in what is now the Applied Information Sciences Department, leading the office responsible for developing advanced information processing and networking concepts. He joined APL after a distinguished 24-year career at Bell Labs/Lucent Technologies, where he served as a senior director in the Advanced Communications Technologies Center and as the director of Performance Analysis, among other management positions.

Doshi received a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India, and earned his doctorate in operations research from Cornell University.
