Radu Marculescu received the PhD degree in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California, in 1998. He is currently a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh. Prior to joining Carnegie Mellon University, he was a faculty member at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. Dr. Marculescu is a recipient of the US National Science Foundation's CAREER Award (2000) in the area of design automation of electronic systems. He received the 2005 IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration Systems Best Paper Award from the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, two Best Paper awards from the Design, Automation and Test in Europe Conference in 2001 and 2003, and a Best Paper award from the Asia and South Pacific Design Automation Conference in 2003. He was also awarded the Carnegie Institute of Technology's Ladd Research Award in 2002. Dr. Marculescu is an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Computers, ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Embedded Systems, and ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems. In the past, Dr. Marculescu was an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration Systems (2003-2006) and the Journal of VLSI Design (2006-2008). He has been involved in organizing many international symposia, conferences, and workshops sponsored by professional organizations, as well as as a guest editor of special issues in archival journals and magazines such as the IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Micro, and IEEE Design and Test of Computers. He was the cofounding general chair of the IEEE Workshop on Embedded Systems for Real-Time Multimedia. His research interests are in developing energy-efficient design methodologies for SoC design, on-chip communication, ambient intelligence, and wireless sensors. He has extensively published in these areas and contributed to several edited books. He is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the ACM.
