Congratulations to Professor Shankar Raman for being named one of the 2018 MacVicar Fellows!
Allison Trachy via MIT News writes: “Raman’s unconventional path has proven particularly beneficial to his students. “One of the most unique and helpful aspects of Prof. Raman’s advising,” one former student wrote, “was his ability to leverage his own unique life trajectory, which enables him to connect with MIT students on their own technically-minded terms better than most.”
Colleagues praise Raman’s “pedagogically insightful, generously collective” personality. Head of the literature section, Mary C. Fuller, says, “Shankar transmits to students his own appetite for thinking beyond the classroom.””
