Subhasish Mitra is Professor of Electrical Engineering and of Computer Science at Stanford University, where he directs the Stanford Robust Systems Group and co-leads the Computation thrust of the Stanford SystemX Alliance. He is also a faculty member of the Stanford Neurosciences Institute. Before joining Stanford, he was a Principal Engineer at Intel Corporation. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford.

Prof. Mitra's research interests range broadly across robust computing, nanosystems, VLSI design, CAD, validation and test, and neurosciences. He, jointly with his students and collaborators, demonstrated the first carbon nanotube computer, which appeared on the cover of NATURE. The National Science Foundation presented this work as a Research Highlight to the United States Congress, and it also was highlighted as "an important, scientific breakthrough" by the BBC, Economist, EE Times, IEEE Spectrum, MIT Technology Review, National Public Radio, New York Times, Scientific American, Time, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and numerous others worldwide. His earlier work on X-Compact test compression has been key to cost-effective manufacturing and high-quality testing of a vast majority of electronic systems. X-Compact and its derivatives have been implemented in widely-used commercial Electronic Design Automation tools.  

Prof. Mitra's honors include the ACM SIGDA/IEEE CEDA A. Richard Newton Technical Impact Award in Electronic Design Automation (a test of time honor), the Semiconductor Research Corporation's Technical Excellence Award, the Intel Achievement Award (Intel’s highest corporate honor), and the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers from the White House (the highest United States honor for early-career outstanding scientists and engineers).  He and his students published several award-winning papers at major venues: IEEE/ACM Design Automation Conference, IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference, IEEE International Test Conference, IEEE Transactions on CAD, IEEE VLSI Test Symposium, and the Symposium on VLSI Technology. At Stanford, he has been honored several times by graduating seniors "for being important to them during their time at Stanford."

Prof. Mitra served on the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Information Science and Technology Board as an invited member. He is a Fellow of the ACM and the IEEE.
