Academic receives IEEE TCCPS Early Career Award

Outstanding contributions to the field of Cyber Physical Systems recognised

A Newcastle University Lecturer has beaten an international field to win a prestigious award.

Dr Raj Ranjan won the IEEE TCCPS Early Career Award for his work on resource and data management models and methods in large-scale Cyber Physical Systems. The award recognises a researcher from either academia or industry who has demonstrated outstanding contributions to the field of cyber-physical system (CPS) in the early stage of their career development

Dr Ranjan has established an international reputation as a leader in the discipline of Cyber Physical Systems. For over 10 years he has conducted seminal research around the development of generic resource management models and methods for efficient scheduling and resource allocation for all types of parallel and distributed computing systems such as grid computing and cloud computing.

He leads the Blue Skies section of IEEE Cloud Computing, where his principal role is to identify and write about the most important, cutting-edge research issues at the intersection of multiple, inter-dependent research disciplines within distributed systems research area including Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics, Cloud Computing, and Edge Computing

A prolific researcher, Ranjan has become one of the world’s most cited computer scientists with over 10,100 citations, an H-index of 43 and G-index of 96 (ref: Google Scholar).
