Biography

Dr. Anup Das is an Associate Professor at Drexel University. He received a PhD in Embedded Systems from National University of Singapore in 2014. He received the Singapore President Fellowship for excellence in research and studies. Following his Ph.D., he was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Southampton, UK and afterwards a researcher at IMEC, Netherlands, leading key projects related to neuromorphic computing. He received the NSF/DARPA real-time machine learning (RTML) award in 2019 for developing operating systems like framework for neuromorphic hardware. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER award in 2020 and the DOE CAREER award in 2021 to address the security and dependability aspects of neuromorphic computing both from software and hardware perspective. He is a senior member of the IEEE.
