This highly qualified expert received his Ph.D in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Prior to that, he received his M.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Alberta and B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science. This expert has 27 years of academic teaching experience as a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the highly regarded University of Michigan. In addition to his academic teaching experience, he has 6 years Industrial R&D experience as Member of Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories and as Senior R&D Engineer at Bharat Electronics Ltd. He also has held the prestigious position as Program Director of Emerging Models and Technologies Programs and Program Director in Electrical, Communications and Cyber Systems Division at the National Science Foundation. This expert is the inventor for 5 published patents and has published over 260 technical papers and 4 books on various aspects of Very-large-scale integration (VLSI) technology and systems. His inventions in testable DRAM circuits, in-line accelerated testing procedures for high-density RAM chips, and testing of embedded ROM and SRAM through JEDEC boundary scan ports are widely used by memory and field-programmable gate array (FPGA) manufacturers. His research in biology-inspired VLSI layout synthesis, self-healing VLSI design and self-repairable memory compilers has made commercial impact. His research group has developed a Quantum SPICE simulator to design several innovative quantum tunneling based circuits that were fabricated by many U.S. companies. He has been awarded many honors including Digital's Incentives for Excellence Award, BF Goodrich National Collegiate Invention Award, and the DARPA Research Excellence Award. This expert is an American Association for the Advance of Science Fellow and an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Fellow for his distinguished contributions to the field of VLSI. He has served as a Consultant for several semiconductor companies as well as an Adviser and Expert Witness in 8 lawsuits involving DRAM, SRAM, Flash, and FPGA. Currently, he is a Tenured Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at a major university where he continues to make active contributions to the field of semiconductor memory systems, quantum tunneling circuits and CAD Tools, and Reliable VLSI Systems Design.
