President -Tejas Jayashankar (

Hey guys! My name is Tejas Jayashankar and I am the President of Tau Beta Pi for this academic year. I am a senior majoring in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Mathematics. I perform research in image and video super-resolution processing under the guidance of Professor Pierre Moulin. I am also a member of HKN. During the summer of 2018, I interned at MathWorks (the makers of MATLAB), so if you have a MATLAB problem, there is a good chance I can help you fix it! In my free time I play cards, ping-pong, board games and pool with my friends. I lived in India for 10 years before coming to UIUC. I speak Kannada and love cooking and eating Mexican food. I am looking forward to a great year for TBP!
