Bio:  Rajit Manohar is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell, where his group conducts research on asynchronous design. He received his B.S. (1994), M.S. (1995), and Ph.D. (1998) from Caltech, and has been on the Cornell faculty since 1998. He is the recipient of an NSF CAREER award, four best paper awards, six teaching awards, and was named to MIT technology review's inaugural top 35 young innovators under 35. He was one of the principal designers of MiniMIPS, the first high-performance asynchronous microprocessor. His group has designed and fabricated several asynchronous VLSI systems, including the first microprocessor for sensor networks, an event-based asynchronous chip-multiprocessor, and a pipeline-configurable asynchronous FPGA. He also co-founded Achronix Semiconductor, a fabless semiconductor company developing high-performance FPGAs.
