Pasricha Head Shot

ECE Associate Professor Sudeep Pasricha has been named a Colorado State University Monfort Professor, one of CSU's top faculty honors. Funded by the Monfort Family Foundation, Pasricha received the transformative award at the 2016 Celebrate! Colorado State awards ceremony.

Pasricha, who has garnered an international reputation for excellence in his field, will hold the Monfort Professor designation for two years, and receive $75,000 per year to further his research in the area of fault-tolerant and energy-efficient resource management for parallel computing systems.

"Sudeep's career has really taken off since joining our department in 2008," said ECE Department Head Tony Maciejewski. "His performance has been phenomenal, and it's impossible to overstate his contributions to our teaching, research, and service missions."

Research and Scholarly Impact

Impressive in both prestige and breadth, Pasricha's honors include the Air Force Office of Scientific Research Young Investigator Award, IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing Outstanding Mid-Career Researcher Award, George T. Abell Outstanding Mid-Career Faculty Award for the College of Engineering, and Association for Computing Machinery SIGDA Technical Leadership Award, among others.

Pasricha has authored or co-authored more than 125 articles in peer-reviewed journals and conferences, many in the most prestigious IEEE journals such as Transactions on Computers, Transactions on Mobile Computing, and Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, with these articles being cited more than 2,000 times. Seven of these articles have also been shortlisted for Best Paper Awards at IEEE or ACM conferences, with five receiving the honor.

Commitment to Teaching

Deeply committed to education, Pasricha has been active in developing two new graduate courses on embedded electronics systems; redesigning undergraduate and graduate-level courses on computer architecture; and leading the effort to create a cross-departmental online certification in embedded systems and computer engineering. His commitment to undergraduate senior design has been unparalleled, having mentored 55 undergraduate students as part of 20 different senior design projects since 2009, with six of these projects being recognized with awards at the CSU Engineering Days competition.

Pasricha earned his Ph.D. in 2008 from the University of California, Irvine.
