Srinivas Katkoori received his Ph.D. degree in computer engineering from the University of Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, in 1998. He is an Associate Professor at the CSE Department at the University of South Florida. His research interests are in high-level synthesis, low-power synthesis, FPGA synthesis, and radiation Tolerant CAD for FPGAs. Dr. Katkoori is a recipient of 2001 NSF CAREER award for a five-year duration. During the sabbatical leave (August–December 2005), he worked at NASA JPL, Pasadena, Calif, USA. To date, he has advised 8 Ph.D. students and 20 M.S. students and authored 65 technical publications which appeared in peer-reviewed international journals (ACM TODAES, IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems, IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation) and peer-reviewed VLSI conferences (such as ICCD, DATE, ISQED, ISCAS, etc.). He is the recipient of the inaugural 2002-2003 USF Outstanding Faculty Research Achievement Award. He holds one US patent. He is the recipient of 2005 Outstanding Engineering Educator Award from the IEEE Florida Council (Region 3). Dr. Katkoori is a Senior Member of ACM and IEEE. He served as the Publicity and Registration Chair (2000) and as the General Cochair and Registration Chair (2001) for the Annual Workshop on VLSI held in Orlando, Florida. He serves on technical committees of several VLSI conferences (such as ICCD, ISQED, SOC, MAPLD, RAW, VLSI, FPL). Moreover, he regularly serves as a Peer Reviewer for IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems, IEEE Transactions on CAD of ICs and Systems, ACM TODAES, and IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation. Dr. Katkoori served as the Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems (2006–2009). Dr. Katkoori served as the faculty advisor of the student chapter of IEEE Computer Society at USF from 1999 to 2005. In 2004, the chapter was recognized as an Outstanding IEEECS Student Chapter across the world. In 2005, he received the IEEE-USA Professional Achievement Award. Dr. Katkoori gave several invited talks on the topic of VLSI design automation.
