Ramesh Karri (http://eeweb.poly.edu/karri/) is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering. He has a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of California at San Diego. His research interests include trustworthy hardware (integrated circuits to processor architectures); High assurance nanoscale integrated circuits, architectures, and systems; VLSI Design and Test; Interaction between security and reliability.

He has over 150 journal and conference publications. He has written two invited articles in IEEE Computer on Trustworthy Hardware, an invited article on Digital Logic Design using Memristors in Proceedings of IEEE and an Invited article in IEEE Computer on Reliable Nanoscale Systems.

He is the recipient of the Humboldt Fellowship and the National Science Foundation CAREER Award. He is the area director for cyber security of the NY State Center for Advanced Telecommunications Technologies at NYU School of Engineering; Hardware security lead of the Center for research in interdisciplinary studies in security and privacy -CRISSP (http://crissp.poly.edu/), co-founder of the Trust-Hub (http://trust-hub.org/) and organizes the annual red team blue team event at NYU, the Embedded Systems Security Challenge (http://www.poly.edu/csaw2012/csaw-embedded).

He co-founded and served as the chair of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Nanoscale architectures. He co-founded and serves on the steering committee of the IEEE/ACM Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures (NANOARCH). He served as  the Program Chair and General Chair of several conferences including IEEE Symposium on Hardware Oriented Security and Trust (HOST),  IEEE Symposium on Defect and Fault Tolerant Nano VLSI Systems, IEEE/ACM NANOARCH. He serves on several program committees including DAC, VTS, ICCD, HOST, DFT, DTIS, and NANOARCH. He is the Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, IEEE Transactions on CAD, and ACM Journal of Emerging Technologies in Computing. He is a IEEE Computer Society Distinguished Visitor 2013-2014.

He organized/delivered invited tutorials on Trustworthy Hardware (including 2012 IEEE VLSI Test Symposium 2012, IEEE International Conference on Computer Design 2012, IEEE North Atlantic Test Workshop 2013, Design Automation and Test in Europe 2013, IEEE International Test Conference 2013, IEEE Latin American Test Workshop 2014, IEEE/ACM Design Automation Conference 2014, and IEEE ).
