Since Fall 2011, I am on Faculty Development Leave. I am working with Prof Jacob Abraham at UT Austin on applications of noise-based logic as well as new ideas to realize high-speed I/O.
Invited to serve as Associate Editor, ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (TODAES). I will cover papers in the area of Logic, RTL and behavioral synthesis for a 3-year term, starting February 2012.
In January 2012, we published a new research monograph "Practical & Real Time IP Routing Table Compression - Extending algorithms from digital logic synthesis". Bollapalli, Khatri. The publishers were LAP Lambert Academic Publishing.
''Manycore, Heterogenous, or Neither: Which One is the Way to Go for EDA?''. Invited to serve as a panelist to discuss this topic . The panel was part of the IEEE/ACM International Conference on Computer-Aided Design (ICCAD) 2011.
Our paper, "FPGA-Based Hardware Acceleration for Boolean Satisfiability" (Gulati, Paul, Khatri, Patil, Jas), wsa among the top 10 downloaded papers of the ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (TODAES) journal in 2010. It was nominated for best paper for the journal (2010) .
Our paper, "A SAT-based Scheme to Determine Optimal Fix-Free Codes" (Abedini, Khatri, Savari) received the Capocelli Prize (Best Student Paper Award) at the Data Compression Conference (DCC) 2010.
I was recently elected to serve as Chair, ACM SIGDA Logic/RTL Synthesis Technical Committee for 2010-11.
Along with Dr. John Croix of Cadence Design Systems, I presented a tutorial titled "Introduction to GPU Programming for EDA", at ICCAD 2009.
I received the 2009 "Association of Former Students (AFS) College Level Distinguished Teaching Award" for excellence in teaching..
I have been invited to serve as the Logic Synthesis sub-committee chair for the ICCAD 2009 conference, the DATE 2010 TPC for Track D13 (Logic and Technology Dependent Synthesis for Deep-Submicron Circuits), and the ISQED 2010 TPC.
My PhD student Kanupriya Gulati received the Best Student Paper award at the recent International Test Synthesis Workshop (ITSW) held in March 2009. Kanupriya also received the prestigious 2008-9 NVIDIA Fellowship for her PhD studies.
In August 2008, 2 of my summer undergraduate research students (Joe Duperre III and Gordon Burgett) received the first and second prizes for their summer research. This research was conducted under the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program, sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Joe and Gordon's work was mentored by my PhD student Rajesh Garg. This is the second time our summer undergraduates have received this prize. In summer 2005, my summer research students (Eric Menendez and Dumezie Maduike) also received the first prize for their REU work (which was also mentored by Rajesh Garg).
Thanks to all the hard work of the students in my group, I was awarded the ECE Outstanding Faculty Award in 2007.
