Archisman Ghosh wins the IEEE SSCS Predoctoral Achievement Award
The IEEE Solid -State Circuits Society (SSCS) has awarded a 2021-2022 Predoctoral Achievement Award to Archisman Ghosh, a PhD student in Purdue University’s Elmore Family School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The award provides a $1,000 honorarium as well as other expenses incurred by the awardee.
Applicants must be members of the IEEE and the Solid-State Circuits Society and have completed at least one year of study in a PhD program in the area of solid-state circuits. Awards are made on the basis of academic record and promise, quality of publications, and a graduate study program well matched to the charter of SSCS.
"It's an honor to achieve SSCS predoctoral achievement award,” said Ghosh. “I am more than delighted that our lab's work has been recognized in the highest level of solid-state circuit community."
Ghosh is a 3rd-year Ph.D. student at the SPARC Lab, advised by Prof. Shreyas Sen. His research focus is Digital SoC Design for hardware security. At ISSCC 2021 conference, Ghosh presented his work on a synthesizable countermeasure which improved state-of-the-art by 25% and state-of-the-art synthesizable countermeasure by 25x. Recently, he has also implemented 1st post-silicon implementation and verification of Saber (post-quantum cryptographic algorithm standardization procedure finalist by NIST) in collaboration with KU Leuven which has been accepted at CICC (Custom Integrated Circuit Conference) 2022.
This is the second straight year a student from Sen’s SPARC Lab has received the IEEE SSCS Predoctoral Achievement Award. Debayan Das was an awardee in 2020-2021.
