Conor Madigan, who graduated from Princeton with a degree in electrical engineering in 2000, has been anointed this year as one of Technology Review‘s top 35 innovators under the age of 35.

Madigan is the CEO and co-founder of Kateeva, a leading startup in the field of organic light-emitting diodes. Television displays based on OLEDs, writes Technology Review, “are brighter, crisper, and more energy efficient than liquid-crystal displays. But they’re very expensive, especially for large-screen models. Conor Madigan is working to drive down the cost of these displays.”

Also named to the TR35 this year are Princeton Engineering faculty members Michael McAlpine and Celeste Nelson. By the way, Princeton’s Mung Chiang, who was named to TR35 in 2007, continues to push the frontiers of networking with his EDGE lab — more here.
