Distinguished Lecture Series: Beyond Charge-Based Computing
with Kaushik Roy, Purdue University
Kaushik Roy received B.Tech. degree in electronics and electrical communications engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India, and Ph.D. degree from the electrical and computer engineering department of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1990. He was with the Semiconductor Process and Design Center of Texas Instruments, Dallas, where he worked on FPGA architecture development and low-power circuit design. He joined the electrical and computer engineering faculty at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, in 1993, where he is currently a Professor and holds the Roscoe H. George Chair of Electrical & Computer Engineering. His research interests include Spintronics, device-circuit co-design for nano-scale Silicon and non-Silicon technologies, low-power electronics for portable computing and wireless communications, and new computing models enabled by emerging technologies. Dr. Roy has published more than 600 papers in refereed journals and conferences, holds 15 patents, graduated 57 PhD students, and is co-author of two books on Low Power CMOS VLSI Design (John Wiley & McGraw Hill).
