Rajesh K. Gupta is a professor of Computer Science and Engineering at UC San Diego where he currently serves as founding director of the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute. Professor Gupta’s research is in embedded and cyber-physical systems with a focus on sensor data organization and its use in optimization and analytics. He has led several large scale projects including NSF Expeditions on Variability and DARPA projects under Data Intensive Systems (DIS) and Circuit Realization at Faster Timescales (CRAFT) programs. He currently leads NSF project MetroInsight and a co-PI on DARPA/SRC Center on Computing on Network Infrastructure (CONIX) with the goal to build new generation of distributed cyber-physical systems that use city-scale sensing data for improved services and autonomy. His past contributions include SystemC modeling and SPARK parallelizing high-level synthesis, both of which have been incorporated into industrial practice. Among recent recognition of his work is a best demonstration paper award at ACM BuildSys’16. He has served as EIC of IEEE Design & Test of Computers and founding EIC of IEEE Embedded Systems Letters. He currently serves as Editor-in-chief of IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems.
Gupta received a Bachelor of Technology in electrical engineering from IIT Kanpur, India; a Master of Science in EECS from University of California, Berkeley; and a PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University, US. Earlier he worked at Intel Corporation, Santa Clara and on the Computer Science faculty at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
and UC Irvine.
Prof. Gupta holds Qualcomm Endowed Chair in Embedded Microsystems at UC San Diego and INRIA International Chair at the French international research institute in Rennes, Bretagne Atlantique. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, the ACM and American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
