Balaji Prabhakar

Professor of electrical engineering and computer science, Stanford University

Balaji Prabhakar

Balaji Prabhakar is a faculty member in the Departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Stanford University. His research interests are in computer networks—notably, in designing algorithms for the Internet and for data centers. Recently he has been interested in “societal” networks that are vital for society’s functioning, such as transportation, electricity, and recycling systems. He has been involved in developing and deploying incentive mechanisms to move commuters to off-peak times so that congestion and fuel and pollution costs are reduced.

Prabhakar has been a Terman Fellow at Stanford University and a fellow of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. He has received the Career award from the U.S. National Science Foundation, as well as the Erlang Prize and the Rollo Davidson Prize, and he has delivered a Lunteren lecture. He is a co-recipient of several best-paper awards.
