Explores frontiers in analog and neuromorphic integrated circuits


Shantanu Chakrabartty's research explores new frontiers in analog and neuromorphic computing techniques using silicon and hybrid substrates. His objective is to approach the fundamental limits of energy efficiency, sensing and resolution by exploiting computational and adaptation primitives inherent in the physics of devices, sensors and the underlying noise processes. Professor Chakrabartty is utilizing these novel techniques to design self-powered sensors, computers, machine learning processors and biomedical instrumentation.


Professor Chakrabartty joined the Washington University in St. Louis faculty from Michigan State University, where he served as Professor and Director of the Adaptive Integrated Microsystems Laboratory. He received his B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi, India before receiving his MS and PhD from Johns Hopkins University in 2002 and 2004.

Professor Chakrabartty is an alumnus of the US National Academy Frontiers of Engineering and has received numerous awards including the National Science Foundation CAREER Award (2010), MSU Teacher-Scholar Award (2011), and the MSU Innovation of the Year Award (2012).
