Dr. Rajesh K. Gupta

Professor and Qualcomm Endowed Chair, University of California San Diego

Rajesh Gupta is a professor in the Computer Science & Engineering Department of the University of California San Diego (UC San Diego). He received a B. Tech in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, in 1984, an MS from the University of California, Berkeley in 1986, and a PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1994.

Prior to coming to UC San Diego, Dr. 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 UrbanaChampaign and at the University of California, Irvine (UCI).

Dr. 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.

Dr. Gupta is a recipient of the Chancellor’s Fellow at UCI, 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. He serves as associate director of the Qualcomm Institute at UC San Diego and holds the Qualcomm Endowed Chair in Microelectronic Embedded Systems.
