Dr. Prasun Ghosal is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Information Technology, Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (An Institute of National Importance), Shibpur, India. He has been a visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of North Texas, the USA during 2013 - 2014 (under Raman Post Doctoral Fellowship from UGC, GOI) and a Heidelberg Laureate Post Doctoral Fellow (visited University of Heidelberg, Germany) in 2013. He received the Ph.D. degree (Engg) from Bengal Engineering and Science University in 2011, M.Tech. and B.Tech. in Radio Physics and Electronics from the Institute of Radio Physics and Electronics, University of Calcutta, India in 2005 and 2002 respectively, B.Sc. (Honours) in Physics in 1999 from the University of Calcutta, India.
His research is in Performance Centric, Power-Aware Nanoscale Electronic System Design and Computing including Performance Centric Layout Design of 3D Integrated Circuits, Performance-centric, Power-Aware Design of Networks-on-Chips (NoC), and Post Silicon Nanoscale Technologies and Computing viz. Memristors, DNA Computing, Reversible Circuit Synthesis, etc. His research has been funded by AICTE, DIT, MCIT, Govt of India, IEI, etc. He has contributed more than 100 research articles in several peer-reviewed avenues of international journals and conferences. Besides copyright he has also contributed towards several book chapters in edited volumes from different publishers including CRC press, and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, etc.
He is a recipient of the Young Scientist Research Award 2011 from the Indian Science Congress Association, recipient of several Best Paper Awards in IEEE iNIS 2016, ICAEE - 2014 from IEEE CS, ADCONS - 2011, etc., Best Paper Award Nominee in ISVLSI - 2008.
He served as the Vice-Chair of the Steering Committee [2014 - 2017] and one of the Founding members of the IEEE iNIS (IEEE International Symposium on Nanoelectronic and Information Systems). He has served/is serving as General Chair/Program Chair/Track Chair/TPC member in several conference committees including GLSVLSI, ISVLSI, IEEE iNIS, ACM MobiHoc, IEEE TENSYMP, ICIT, VDAT, IEEE TechSym, etc. He has served as the Vice-Chair, Executive Committee of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on VLSI (2014-2017), Associate Editor, IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine (2015-2017), Associate Editor, VLSI Circuits and Systems Letter (2015-2017), Guest Editor, ELSEVIER Integration, The VLSI Journal. He is serving as the Editor, IEEE Ethics and Policy in Technology eNewsletters (IEEE Internet Initiative newsletter and IEEE Future Directions newsletter). Dr. Ghosal is actively involved in activities of several professional bodies as Senior Member, ACM, Member, IEEE, CSTA, ACM, IAENG, CSI, ISCA, EN, etc.
Broadly my research is focused on Performance Centric, Power-Aware Nanoscale Computing, and Electronic System Design. Major thrust areas are as follows.
Other areas of interests (worked previously but still open) include Reversible Circuit Synthesis, Modeling of Carbon nanotube (CNT) interconnects, Nano-photonic interconnects and photonic NoCs, Quantum Information Processing, Social and Environmental Computing, etc.
