Siddharth Garg, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, NYU Tandon School of Engineering


Siddharth Garg received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2009, and a B.Tech. degree in Electrical Enginerring from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. He joined NYU in Fall 2014 as an Assistant Professor, and prior to that, was an Assistant Professor at the University of Waterloo from 2010-2014. His general research interests are in computer engineering, and more particularly in secure, reliable and energy-efficient computing.

For his research, Siddharth has received the NSF CAREER Award (2015), and  best paper awards at the USENIX Security Symposium 2013, at the Semiconductor Research Consortium TECHCON in 2010, and the International Symposium on Quality in Electronic Design (ISQED) in 2009. Siddharth also received the Angel G. Jordan Award from ECE department of Carnegie Mellon University for outstanding thesis contributions and service to the community. He serves on the technical program committee of several top conferences in the area of computer engineering and computer hardware, and has served as a reviewer for several IEEE and ACM journals.

My primary research interests are in computer engineering, with a specific focus on secure, energy-aware and reliable computer hardware. This includes research spanning from computer architecture, to  electronic design automation (EDA) algorithms and digital VLSI design. I am also interested in circuits, systems and architectures for  emerging nanoelectronic devices.
