Tulika Mitra is Provost's Chair Professor of Computer Science at School of Computing, National University of Singapore (NUS). Her research interests span various aspects of the design automation of embedded real-time systems, cyber-physical systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) with particular emphasis on low-power computing, heterogeneous computing, application-specific processors, and software timing analysis/optimizations. She has authored over hundred and fifty scientific publications in leading international journals and conferences and holds multiple US patents. Her research has been recognized by best paper award and nominations in leading conferences. Prof. Mitra currently serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems and Associate Editor of IEEE Design & Test and IEEE Micro. She has served as Deputy Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Embedded Systems Letters and Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems in the past. She has served in the organizing and program committees of several major conferences in embedded systems, real-time systems, and electronic design automation including General Chair of Embedded Systems Week (ESWEEK) 2020, Program Chair of ICCAD 2021, EMOSFT 2014, CASES 2018. She is a Member of the ACM Publications Board co-chairing the New Publications Committee.
