punya@msu.edu http://punya.educ.msu.edu/ Bio: He conducts research and development work around educational technology. The research is funded by over $4 million in grants from national and international agencies. In terms of news, He recently received two grants. One from the US Dept of Education (called the Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology grant) for 1.5 million dollars (for three years). The other is a grant through US-AID (half a million) for Reaching & Educating At-risk Children (REACH) in India. Research has focused on the cognitive, aesthetic, and social aspects related to the design and use of computer based learning environments. Other interests include online learning, cognitive psychology of science, visual literacy, and creativity. My work can be seen as falling into three broadly overlapping categories: Psychological Responses to media [New: AAAI symposium on Etiquette] Design & teaching with technology. He also creates a form of visual wordplay called ambigrams (which you can find on his website). 60.

His work focused on advanced multivariable control for jet engines, , computer- aided control system design, vision based robots for precision welding, model-based fault identification and parallel implementation of Kalman filters. Dr. Baheti and his colleagues received IR-100 award for robotic welding vision system. In 1989, Dr. Baheti joined NSF as a Program Director in the Division of Electrical and Communications Systems. He has been instrumental in the development of NSF initiatives on "Combined Research and Curriculum Development", "Semiconductor Manufacturing", and NSF/EPRI Initiative on "Intelligent Control". His contributions include the development of NSF Initiative on "Learning and Intelligent Systems" to help harness information technologies and enable active partnerships between several disciplines such as engineering, neuroscience, control theory, cognitive science, computer science and education. He has served as associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, member of the Control Systems Board of Governors, and chair for Public Information Committee. In 1994, he received "Distinguished Member Award" from the IEEE Control Systems Society and in 1997, he was elected a Fellow of IEEE. 61.
