Ph.D. candidate Debapriya Chatterjee has received an NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship for the 2010-2011 academic year. NVIDIA awards only 10 of these fellowships per year to top Ph.D. students who are working to help solve complex visual and parallel computing challenges.
Debapriya was chosen as an NVIDIA graduate fellow based on his work in developing EDA applications for GP-GPU platforms. NVIDIA Chief Scientist Bill Dally, who heads the committee which selected the award recipients, stated "The NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program recognizes and supports excellence in GPU computing research in universities worldwide. It facilitates outstanding research and builds relationships between NVIDIA and the academic community. I look forward to working with these talented students.”
Debapriya Chatterjee is a third year Ph.D. candidate working with Prof. Valeria Bertacco. His research focuses on validation and verification solutions for industry-scale digital designs. His solutions entail both novel and adaptable semi-formal verification methods and the use of massively parallel multi-core platforms to boost the performance of key validation applications. Debapriya holds a B. Tech. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India and a MS degree from the University of Michigan; both degrees are in Computer Science and Engineering.
