Anupam Chattopadhyay, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore


Anupam Chattopadhyay received his B.E. degree from Jadavpur University, India, MSc. from ALaRI, Switzerland and PhD from RWTH Aachen in 2000, 2002 and 2008 respectively. From 2008 to 2009, he worked as a Member of Consulting Staff in CoWare R&D, Noida, India. From 2010 to 2014, he led the MPSoC Architectures Research Group in RWTH Aachen, Germany as a Junior Professor. Since September, 2014, he is appointed as an assistant Professor in SCSE, NTU and also holds an honorary adjunct appointment at SPMS, NTU. In the past, he was visiting Professor at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland and Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.

During his doctoral studies, he worked on automatic RTL generation from the architecture description language LISA, which led to a spin-off, and subsequently was acquired by a leading EDA vendor. He developed novel high-level optimisations, verification techniques, and proposed a language-based modelling, exploration and design framework for partially re-configurable processors - many of which resulted in successful technology transfers to the EDA and Semiconductor IP industry. 


Research History

Anupam currently heads a team of 20+ researchers, overseeing projects in the area of computer architectures, security, design automation and emerging technologies. His research advances has been reported in more than 150 conference/journal papers (ACM/IEEE/Springer), multiple research monographs, book-chapters and edited books (CRC, Springer) and open-access forums. Together with his doctoral students, Anupam proposed novel research directions like, domain-specific high-level synthesis for cryptography, high-level reliability estimation flows for embedded processors, generalisation of classic linear algebra kernels and multi-layered coarse-grained reconfigurable architecture. Anupam’s research in the area of emerging technologies has been covered by major news outlets across the world, including Asian Scientist, Straits Times and The Economist.


Positions and Awards

Anupam regularly serves in the TPCs of top-tier conferences, reviews journal/ conference articles and presented multiple invited seminars/tutorials in prestigious venues. He is series editor of Springer book series on Computer Architecture and Design Methodologies. He is a member of ACM and a senior member of IEEE. Anupam received Borcher's plaque from RWTH Aachen, Germany for outstanding doctoral dissertation in 2008 and the nomination for best IP award in DATE 2016.
