Luca Daniel to be Honored with Early Career Award from IEEE CEDA
August 17th, 2010 by Donatella Sciuto, President of CEDA
I’m pleased to announce that Luca Daniel, associate professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at MIT, is this year’s Early Career Award recipient.
The IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) established the first Early Career Award in 2009. The award recognizes an individual who has made innovative and substantial technical contributions to the area of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) in the early stages of her or his career.
The first was awarded last year to Professor Igor Markov from the University of Michigan who was recognized for his outstanding contributions to algorithms, methodologies and software for the physical design of integrated circuits.
The award is based on contributions to the field of EDA. The contribution is measured on the technical merit and creativity in performing research, and is assessed based on the published record of the individual and references accompanying the nomination. The award is intended to be equally available to contributors from academic and industrial institutions.
The call for nominations closed in April this year with seven very good nominations. The Award Committee worked hard to evaluate the current and potential impact of the nominees’ individual contributions to EDA, and selected Professor Daniel.
As well as serving as an associate professor at MIT, Professor Daniel is a principal investigator of MIT’s Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) Computational Prototyping Group. His research interests include parameterized model order reduction of linear and nonlinear dynamical systems; mixed-signal, RF and mm-wave circuit design and robust optimization; power electronics, MEMs design and fabrication; parasitic extraction and accelerated integral equation solvers.
Professor Daniel received the Laurea degree summa cum laude in Electronic Engineering from the Universita’ di Padova in Italy in 1996 and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2003. In 1997, he collaborated with STMicroelectronics Berkeley Labs. In 1998, he worked for HP Research Labs in Palo Alto, Calif., and in 2001, he was employed by Cadence Berkeley Labs.
This award will be presented November 8 at the opening session of ICCAD 2010, sponsored by IEEE CEDA, at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose. Details about ICCAD can be found at: www.iccad.com.
