He is now the William H. Younger Distinguished Professor of Engineering in the Department of Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Professor of Computer Science at Duke University. In addition, he serves as the Executive Director of Graduate Studies in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Prof. Chakrabarty is a recipient of the National Science Foundation Early Faculty (CAREER) award, the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator award, the Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Germany, and 10 best paper awards at major IEEE conferences. He is also a recipient of the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur.
Prof. Chakrabarty’s current research projects include: testing and design-for-testability of integrated circuits; digital microfluidics, biochips, and cyberphysical systems; optimization of digital print and enterprise systems. He has also led major research projects in the past on wireless sensor networks, embedded real-time operating systems, and chip cooling using digital microfluidics. He has authored 16 books on these topics (with one more book in press), published over 500 papers in journals and refereed conference proceedings, and given over 220 invited, keynote, and plenary talks. He has also presented 40 tutorials at major international conferences. Prof. Chakrabarty is a Fellow of ACM, a Fellow of IEEE, and a Golden Core Member of the IEEE Computer Society. He holds five US patents, with several patents pending. He was a 2009 Invitational Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). He is a recipient of the 2008 Duke University Graduate School Dean’s Award for excellence in mentoring, and the 2010 Capers and Marion McDonald Award for Excellence in Mentoring and Advising, Pratt School of Engineering, Duke University. He served as a Distinguished Visitor of the IEEE Computer Society during 2005-2007 and 2010-2012, and as a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society during 2006-2007 and 2012-2013. Currently he serves as an ACM Distinguished Speaker.
Prof. Chakrabarty served as the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Design & Test of Computers during 2010-2012.
