“From Bridges to Brains: Expeditions in Analog Computing”
Hosted by the McKelvey School of Engineering and the Department of Electrical & Systems Engineering (ESE)
Please join us for the installation ceremony of Shantanu Chakrabartty as the Clifford W. Murphy Professor.
Brief bio: Shantanu Chakrabartty’s research explores new frontiers in unconventional analog computing techniques using silicon and hybrid substrates. His objective is to approach fundamental limits of energy efficiency, sensing and resolution by exploiting computational and adaptation primitives inherent in the physics of devices, sensors and the underlying noise processes. Professor Chakrabartty is using these novel techniques to design self-powered computing devices, analog processors and instrumentation with applications in biomedical and structural engineering.
Professor Chakrabartty joined the Washington University in St. Louis faculty from Michigan State University, where he served as Professor and Director of the Adaptive Integrated Microsystems Laboratory. He received his B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi, India before receiving his MS and PhD from Johns Hopkins University in 2002 and 2004.
