Dr. Sudeep Pasricha

Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Joint Appointment Professor in Departments of Computer Science and Systems Engineering


Prof. Pasricha received the B.E. degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Delhi Institute of Technology, India, in 2000, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine in 2008. He joined Colorado State University (CSU) in 2008. Prior to joining CSU, he spent several years working in STMicroelectronics and Conexant Inc. His research focuses on the design of innovative software algorithms, hardware architectures, and hardware-software co-design techniques for energy-efficient, fault-tolerant, real-time, and secure computing. He has co-authored seven books, multiple patents, and published more than 300 research articles in peer-reviewed journals and conferences, workshops, and books. He has given multiple invited keynotes at IEEE and ACM conferences on a variety of topics that span optical computing, AI acceleration with silicon photonics, machine learning for IoT applications, sustainable datacenters, and robust chip-scale networks. His research has been funded by various sponsors including NSF, SRC, AFOSR, DOE, ORNL, DoD, Fiat-Chrysler, HPE, and NASA. He has received multiple Best Paper Awards and Nominations at various IEEE and ACM conferences, including at DAC, ASPDAC, NOCS, GLSVLSI, IGSC, SLIP, AICCSA, and ISQED. Other notable awards include: 2022 ACM Distinguished Speaker, 2019 George T. Abell Outstanding Research Faculty Award, the 2016-2018 University Distinguished Monfort Professorship, 2016-2019 Walter Scott Jr. College of Engineering Rockwell-Anderson Professorship, 2018 IEEE-CS/TCVLSI mid-career research Achievement Award, the 2015 IEEE/TCSC Award for Excellence for a mid-career researcher, the 2014 George T. Abell Outstanding Mid-career Faculty Award, and the 2013 AFOSR Young Investigator Award. Prof. Pasricha has served as General Chair and Program Chair for multiple IEEE and ACM conferences, and also serves in the Editorial board of multiple IEEE and ACM journals including ACM Journal of Emerging Technologies in Computing, IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Computing, ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, and IEEE Design & Test of Computers. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, Fellow of the AAIA, Distinguished Member of the ACM, and an ACM Distinguished Speaker.
