Kaustav Banerjee Receives Outstanding New Faculty Award From the Association for Computing Machinery’s Design Automation Group

Santa Barbara, Calif. – 12/9/04 -- Kaustav Banerjee, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara, received the 2004 Outstanding New Faculty Award from the Association for Computing Machinery’s special interest group on design automation (ACM SIGDA).

The award, which recognizes faculty members early in their careers for demonstrating outstanding potential as an educator and researcher in the field of electronic design automation (EDA), is based not only on prior research and teaching accomplishments, but also on the impact that the candidate has had on his or her department and on the EDA field. In addition to a certificate, the award includes a grant to support Banerjee’s research. Banerjee accepted the award at the International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD) in San Jose, California, in November, 2004.

The ACM, founded in 1947, is the world's first educational and scientific computing society that seeks to advance the skills of information technology professionals and students worldwide. The Design Automation special interest group (SIGDA) serves design automation professionals who are involved in the application of computers to all phases of electrical and electronic design.

Banerjee received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1999. Before coming to UCSB in 2002, he was a research associate at Stanford University’s Center for Integrated Systems. He also served as a visiting professor at Intel’s Circuit Research Labs, in Hillsboro, Oregon, in 2002. His research interests are focused in the area of nanometer scale circuit effects in high-performance very large scale integrated circuits (VLSI) as well as in circuits and systems issues in emerging nanoelectronics.
