Debdeep Mukhopadhyay is currently a Visiting Professor in the School of Computer Engineering, NYU Abu Dhabi, and is an Institute Chair Professor at the Department of CSE, IIT Kharagpur. At IIT Kharagpur he initiated Secured Embedded Architecture Laboratory (SEAL), focusing on Hardware-Security. He holds a PhD, MS, and a B.Tech from IIT Kharagpur. His research interests are on the topics of Cryptographic Engineering, Micro-architectural security and Hardware-Security. Recently he is intrigued by adversarial attacks on machine-learning, and encrypted computations, which includes homomorphic computations and searchable encryptions.
Mukhopadhyay has published more than 250 papers in peer-reviewed conferences and journals, and is in the editorial boards and program committees of several top journals and conferences. Mukhopadhyay is the recipient of the prestigious Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Award 2021 for Science and Technology (highest science honor in India below the age of 45) and is a Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineers, and Fellow of the Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) for contributions to Information Security.
He is also a fellow of C3iHub (Cyber Security and Cyber Security for Cyber-Physical Systems) Innovation Hub of IIT Kanpur, and has been enlisted in Asia’s most outstanding researchers compiled by Asian Scientist Magazine. He was awarded the Qualcomm Faculty Award 2022, Khosla National Award from IIT Roorkee 2021, DST Swarnajayanti Fellowship 2015-16, INSA Young Scientist award, INAE Young Engineer award, and Associateship for the Indian Academy of Sciences and is a senior member of IEEE/ACM.
