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.
Dr. Raghunathan is currently a Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University, and directs research in the Integrated Systems Laboratory in the areas of System-on-chip and Embedded System Design, Domain-specific computing, and Heterogeneous parallel computing. 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 eight book chapters, and has presented several full-day and embedded conference tutorials in the above areas. He holds 20 U.S patents and has authored over 200 refereed conference and journal publications. He has received eight best paper awards at leading conferences - ACM/IEEE Design Automation Conference (1999 and 2000), ACM/IEEE International Conference on HW/SW Codesign and System Synthesis (2006), IEEE International Conference on VLSI Design (one in 1998 and two in 2003), IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing (2010), and ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design (2012) - and four best paper award nominations at the ACM/IEEE Design Automation Conference (1996, 1997, 2003, and 2012). 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 Co-chair for the ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design, the ACM/IEEE International Conferences on Compilers, Architecture and Synthesis for Embedded Systmes, 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 was a recepient of the IEEE Meritorious Service Award (2001) and Outstanding Service Award (2004). He is a Fellow of the IEEE and was elected a Golden Core Member of the IEEE Computer Society in 2001, in recognition of his contributions.
