Tulika Mitra is a Professor (with tenure) of Computer Science at School of Computing, National University of Singapore. She received her PhD from the State University of New York at Stony Brook (2000) and M.E. from the Indian Institute of Science (1997), both in Computer Science. Her research interests span various aspects of the design automation in the context of embedded real-time systems, cyber-physical systems, and Internet of Things with particular emphasis on energy-efficient computing, heterogeneous computing, application-specific processors, and software timing analysis/optimizations. She has authored over hundred scientific publications in premier international journals and conferences in this domain. Her research has been recognized by best paper award at FPT 2012 and best paper nominations at DAC (2016, 2012, 2009), DATE 2017, VLSI 2013, CODES+ISSS 2008, FPL 2007, ECRTS 2007, and CASES (2016, 2007). She is co-inventor of the widely used Chronos static timing analysis tool for real-time software. Her research has been funded by Ministry of Education Singapore, National Research Foundation Singapore, A*STAR Science & Engineering Research Council, Cambridge Silicon Radio, Huawei, and in-kind contributions from ARM. Prof. Mitra is IEEE Distinguished Visitor (2018-2020) and is the winner of the Indian Institute of Science Prof. S. K. Chatterjee Outstanding Woman Researcher Award 2017. Prof. Mitra serves as the Deputy Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Embedded Systems Letters, Senior Associate Editor of the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, and Associate Editor of the IEEE Design & Test Magazine, EURASIP Journal on Embedded Systems. She was Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems and IET Computers & Digital Techniques in the past. She has served in the organizing and program committees of almost all major conferences in the embedded systems, real-time systems, and design automation domain.
