Lead Principal Investigator

 
Massimo Bruno Alioto

Associate Professor - NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF SINGAPORE

Massimo Alioto was born in Brescia in 1972. He took the M.Sc. degree in Electronic Engineering in 1997, and the Ph.D. degree in 2001 from the University of Catania. He is currently Associate Professor at the ECE department of the National University of Singapore, where he leads the Green IC group and is Director of the Integrated Circuits and Embedded Systems area.

In 2002, he joined the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Siena as a Research Associate, where he became Assistant Professor (2002) and Associate Professor (2005). In the summer of 2007, he was visiting professor at EPFL - Lausanne (Switzerland). In 2009-2011, he was visiting professor at the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC) at the University of California, Berkeley. In 2011-2012, he was visiting professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. In 2013, he was visiting scientist at Circuit Research Lab - Intel Labs (Hillsboro, OR - USA).

His research interests involve extremely energy-efficient integrated circuits and systems, with his research activity being focused on:

· design of ultra low-power circuits and systems for distributed sensing and ubiquitous computing (e.g., IoT, wearables), including processing, memories, on-chip links, power management, analog interfaces, security, energy harvesting

· energy-quality scalable integrated systems for adaptive and dynamic management of the error-quality tradeoff

· always-on accelerators for data sensemaking and learning systems (vision, audio, gas sensors)

· energy efficiency and resiliency in near-threshold circuits for green computing (from circuits to microarchitectures)

· hardware-level security (crypto, physically unclonable functions, circuit-network protocol co-integration)

· circuit design in emerging technologies.

Shivam Bhasin

Senior Research Scientist - NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY

Shivam Bhasin (M’09) was born in India in 1985. He received the B.Tech. degree in electrical engineering from Uttar Pradesh Technological University, India in 2007, M.Sc degree in security of integrated circuits from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de St Etienne, France 
in 2008 and the Ph.D. degree for logic level countermeasures to secure FPGA-based design from Télécom ParisTech, France in 2011.

From 2012 to 2014, he was a postdoctoral research engineer with Institut Mines-Télécom, France where he was involved with projects on hardware security, design time security evaluations and hardware trojans. In 2015, he joined Temasek Labs@Nanyang Technological University (TL@NTU), Singapore as a Research Scientist and soon took over the leadership Physical analysis and cryptographic engineering (PACE) group as a principal investigator. Currently, he holds Senior research scientist position and Programme manager of cryptographic engineering at Centre of hardware Assurance at TL@NTU. Meanwhile, he has held an adjunct professorship at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India since 2018, and is continuing his research in hardware security, implementation level attacks and secjure designs. 

Dr. Bhasin has published over 80 papers in top-tier journal and conferences, and holds one international patent. His work also forms part of several ISO standards in security evaluation.

Anupam Chattopadhyay 

Assistant Professor - NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY

Anupam Chattopadhyay (Senior Member, IEEE) received the B.E. degree from Jadavpur University, India, in 2000, the M.Sc. degree from ALaRI, Switzerland, in 2002, and the Ph.D. degree from RWTH Aachen, Germany, in 2008.

From 2008 to 2009, he worked as a Member of Consulting Staff in CoWare R&D, Noida, India. From 2010 to 2014, he led the MPSoC Architectures Research Group in RWTH Aachen as a Junior Professor. Since September 2014, he has been an Assistant Professor at the School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore and also holds an honorary adjunct appointment at SPMS, NTU. In the past, he was a Visiting Professor at EPFL, Switzerland and Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. His research advances has been reported in more than 100 conference/ journal papers (ACM/IEEE/Springer), multiple research monographs and edited books (CRC, Springer) and open-access forums. Together with his doctoral students, he proposed novel research directions like, domainspecific high-level synthesis for cryptography, high-level reliability estimation flows for embedded processors, generalization of classic linear algebra kernels, and multilayered coarse-grained reconfigurable architecture. His research in the area of emerging technologies has been covered by major news outlets across the world, including Asian Scientist, Straits Times, and The Economist.

Prof. Chattopadhyay received a Borcher’s plaque from RWTH Aachen, Germany for outstanding doctoral dissertation in 2008 and the nomination for best IP award at DATE 2016.
