Dr. Rajesh K. Gupta
Professor and Qualcomm Endowed Chair, University of California – San Diego
Bhupat & Jyoti Mehta Family Foundation CARE team member Rajesh Gupta is a professor in the department of computer science and engineering at UC San Diego, California. He received his B. Tech in electrical engineering from IIT Kanpur, India, in 1984, M.S. from UC Berkeley in 1986 and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1994.
Prior to coming to UC-San Diego, Gupta worked as a circuit designer at Intel Corporation as a member of three successful processor design teams and on the computer science faculty at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and UC-Irvine.
Gupta’s research interests include embedded, cyber-physical systems and the internet-of-things. His focus is on methods and tools to make things better (e.g., more energy efficient, reliable) or enable others (e.g., designers, architects) to do things better. His past contributions include SystemC modeling and SPARK parallelizing high-level synthesis, both of which have been incorporated into industrial practice. His publications and patents cover various aspects of embedded systems design, design automation, clock design, data-path synthesis, system-on-chip modeling, and dynamic power management. His ongoing projects are focused on efficient compositional synthesis of system-chips, microelectronic variability, and accurate timing and synchronization for integrated systems.
Gupta is a recipient of the Chancellor’s Fellow at UC-Irvine, UCI Chancellor’s Award for excellence in undergraduate research, National Science Foundation CAREER Award, two Departmental Achievement Awards and a Components Research Team Award at Intel.
Gupta serves as associate director of the Qualcomm Institute at UC-San Diego. He holds the Qualcomm Endowed Chair in Microelectronic Embedded Systems.
