Kaushik Roy is the Edward G. Tiedemann, Jr., Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University. He received his BTech from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, PhD from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1990 and joined the Semiconductor Process and Design Center of Texas Instruments, Dallas, where he worked for three years on FPGA architecture development and low-power circuit design. His current research focuses on cognitive algorithms, circuits and architecture for energy-efficient neuromorphic computing/ machine learning, and neuro-mimetic devices. Kaushik has supervised 100 PhD dissertations and his students are well placed in universities and industry. He is the co-author of two books on Low Power CMOS VLSI Design (John Wiley & McGraw Hill).
