Dr. Sapatnekar currently is the Henle Chair in ECE and the Distinguished McKnight University Professorship at the University of Minnesota. He received his PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1992. He is a recipient of the NSF Career Award, seven best paper awards at various conferences, and the SRC Technical Excellence award. He is a fellow of the IEEE. He served on the Executive Committee of the ACM/IEEE Design Automation Conference (DAC) from 2005-2011, including as General Chair in 2010, and is currently Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on CAD. His research interests are in the area of design automation of integrated systems, an area in which he has published widely.
