Anand Raghunathan is a Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University. Previously, he was a Senior Research Staff Member at NEC Laboratories America in Princeton, NJ, where he led research projects related to System-on-Chip architectures, design methodologies, and design tools. He has co-authored a book (``High-level Power Analysis and Optimization'') and six book chapters, and has presented several full-day and embedded conference tutorials in the above areas. He holds 20 U.S patents in the areas of advanced system-on-chip architectures, design methodologies and VLSI CAD. He has received eight best paper awards and four best paper nominations at leading IEEE/ACM conferences. He received a Patent of the Year Award (an award recognizing the invention that has achieved the highest impact), and two Technology Commercialization Award from NEC. He was chosen by MIT's Technology Review among the TR35 (top 35 innovators under 35 years, across various disciplines of science and technology) in 2006, for his work on "making mobile secure".
Dr. Raghunathan has been a member of the technical program and organizing committees of several leading conferences and workshops. He has served as Program and General Co-chair for the ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design, and as Program Co-Chair for the IEEE VLSI Test Symposium and the IEEE International Conference on VLSI Design. He has served as Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on CAD, the IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems, ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems, IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, IEEE Design & Test of Computers, and the Journal of Low Power Electronics. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, and Vice-Chair of the Tutorials & Education Group at the IEEE Computer Society's Test Technology Technical Council. He was a recipient of the IEEE Meritorious Service Award (2001) and Outstanding Service Award (2004), and was elected a Golden Core Member of the IEEE Computer Society in 2001, in recognition of his contributions.
Anand Raghunathan received the B. Tech. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India, and the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University, Princeton, NJ.
