Prof. Bhaskar Rao’s retirement event

Message from Prof. Rao
 Bhaskar Rao Retirement Symposium
After 40 years at the University of California as Distinguished Professor and holder of the Ericsson endowed chair, I have transitioned (retired from my original position) to Distinguished Professor of the Graduate Division. This allows me to continue my research and advising graduate students without the others duties associated with a typical Professor position. I am looking to continuing my research at UCSD. This is an exciting transition point and so I hope to explore new ventures and am looking forward to what the future holds.
Here are the public links to the photos and videos of the retirement event organized by the ECE department on September 23, 2023
