Luciano Lavagno received his Ph.D. degree in EECS from University of California, Berkeley, Calif, USA in 1992 and from Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy in 1993. He is a coauthor of two books on asynchronous circuit design, of a book on hardware/software codesign of embedded systems, and of over 160 scientific papers. Between 1993 and 2000, he was the Architect of the POLIS project, a cooperation between University of California, Berkeley, Cadence Design Systems, Magneti Marelli, and Politecnico di Torino, which developed a complete hardware/software codesign environment for control-dominated embedded systems. He is currently a Full Professor with Politecnico di Torino, Italy and an Architect of the CTOSilicon compiler from Cadence Design Systems. He is serving on the technical committees of several international conferences in his field (e.g., DATE, ASYNC, CODES) and of various workshops and symposia. He has been the Technical Program Chair of DAC and the TPC and the General Chair of CODES. He is an Associate Editor of ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems. His research interests include the synthesis of asynchronous low-power circuits, the concurrent design of mixed hardware and software embedded systems, the high-level synthesis of digital circuits, the design and optimization of hardware components and protocols for wireless sensor networks, and design tools for WSNs.
