Principal Investigator

Tushar Krishna

Tushar Krishna is an Assistant Professor in the School of ECE at Georgia Tech since 2015. He has a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT (2014), a M.S.E in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University (2009), and a B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi (2007).

Before joining Georgia Tech, Dr. Krishna spent a year as a post-doctoral researcher at Intel, Massachusetts, and a semester at the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology.

Dr. Krishna’s research spans the computing stack: from circuits/physical design to microarchitecture to system software. His key focus area is in architecting the interconnection networks and communication protocols for efficient data movement within computer systems, both on-chip and in the cloud.
