Electronic Design Automation (EDA) of VLSI Circuits; high-performance circuits; resonant clocking; integrated circuit (IC) physical design; nanoarchitectures; and wireless IC interconnects


Dr. Taskin joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA in 2005, where he is currently a Professor. Between 2003-2004, he was a PhD intern engineer at MultiGiG Inc., Scotts Valley, CA, working on electronic design automation of integrated circuit timing and clocking. He is the coauthor of the book entitled Timing Optimization Through Clock Skew Scheduling (Springer, 2009). His research interests include Electronic Design Automation (EDA) for VLSI, low-power circuits and systems, resonant clocking, clock network synthesis, wireless IC interconnects, Networks-on-Chip (NoC) for Chip Multi-Processors (CMPs), hardware/software design space exploration for exascale computing. He is an "A. Richard Newton Award" winner from the ACM SIGDA in 2007 (for junior faculty starting new programs in EDA), a recipient of the Faculty Early Career Development Award (CAREER) from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2009, the Distinguished Service Award from ACM SIGDA in 2012, the Young Electrical Engineer of the Year Award from IEEE Philadelphia in 2013 and the Drexel ECE Department's Outstanding Research Award in 2015.
