Subhasish Mitra

Subhasish Mitra is Professor of Electrical Engineering and of Computer Science at Stanford University. He directs the Stanford Robust Systems Group, leads the Computation Focus Area of the Stanford SystemX Alliance, and is a member of the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute. Prof. Mitra also holds the Carnot Chair of Excellence in NanoSystems at CEA-LETI in France. His research ranges across Robust Computing, NanoSystems, Electronic Design Automation (EDA), and Neurosciences. Results from his research group have influenced almost every contemporary electronic system, and have inspired significant government and research initiatives in multiple countries. Prof. Mitra also has consulted for major technology companies including Cisco, Google, Intel, Samsung, and Xilinx.

In the field of Robust Computing, he and his students have created many key approaches for circuit failure prediction, on-line diagnostics, QED system validation, soft error resilience, and X-Compact test compression. Their adoption by industry is growing rapidly, in markets ranging from cloud computing to automotive systems. His X-Compact approach has proven essential for cost-effective manufacturing and high-quality testing of almost all 21st century systems, enabling billions of dollars in cost savings.

With his students and collaborators, he demonstrated the first carbon nanotube computer. They also demonstrated the first 3D NanoSystem with computation immersed in data storage. These received wide recognition: cover of NATURE, Research Highlight to the US Congress by the NSF, and highlight as "important, scientific breakthrough" by global news organizations.

Prof. Mitra's honors include the Newton Technical Impact Award in EDA (test of time honor by ACM SIGDA and IEEE CEDA), the Semiconductor Research Corporation’s Technical Excellence Award, the Intel Achievement Award (Intel’s highest honor), and the US Presidential Early Career Award. He has published award-winning papers at venues such as the Design Automation Conference, International Solid-State Circuits Conference, International Test Conference, Symposium on VLSI Technology, and Formal Methods in Computer-Aided Design. Stanford undergraduates have honored him several times "for being important to them." He is an ACM Fellow and an IEEE Fellow.
