Miodrag Potkonjak received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and computer science from University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, Calif, USA in 1991. After spending four years with CCRL Laboratory, NEC, Princeton, NJ, USA, he joined the Computer Science Department at UCLA, where he has been a Professor since 2000. He received the NSF CAREER award and OKAWA foundation award. He also received the TRW/School of Engineering and Applied Science at UCLA Excellence in Teaching Award and a number of best paper nominations and awards. Several of his papers are included in anthologies of best papers in leading conferences and journals. According to Microsoft Libra, one of his papers is among the top ten most cited papers all times in both architecture and hardware as well as in embedded and real-time systems fields. He has published a book and more than 300 papers in leading communication, CAD and VLSI design, embedded systems, real-time systems, computational sensing, and security journals and conferences. He holds ten patents. Potkonjak's current research interests are focused on on- and off-chip communication techniques, real-time communication, security and trust for synthesis and operation of integrated circuits and systems, physical, chemical, and biological security, CAD and embedded systems, coordinated modeling and optimization, augmented reality, and computational sensing. He created the first watermarking, fingerprinting, and metering techniques for integrated circuits.
