Mircea R. Stan received the Ph.D. (1996) and the M.S. (1994) degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and the Diploma (1984) in Electronics and Communications from the Polytechnic Institute in Bucharest, Romania. Since 1996 he has been with the Charles L. Brown Department of ECE at the University of Virginia, where he is now a professor. Prof. Stan is teaching and doing research in the areas of high-performance low-power VLSI, temperature-aware circuits and architecture, embedded systems, spintronics, and nanoelectronics. He leads the High-Performance Low-Power (HPLP) lab and is an associate director of the Center for Automata Processing (CAP). He has more than eight years of industrial experience, has been a visiting faculty at UC Berkeley in 2004-2005, at IBM in 2000, and at Intel in 2002 and 1999. He has received the NSF CAREER award in 1997 and was a co-author on best paper awards at SELSE 2017, ISQED 2008, GLSVLSI 2006, ISCA 2003 and SHAMAN 2002. He gave conference keynotes at SOCC 2016, CNNA 2014, WoNDP 2015 and iNIS 2015. He was the chair of the VSA-TC of IEEE CAS in 2005-2007, general chair for ISLPED 2006 and for GLSVLSI 2004, technical program chair for ISVLSI 2017, NanoNets 2007 and ISLPED 2005, and on technical committees for numerous conferences. He is a Senior Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology and an AE for IEEE Design & Test since 2014, and was an AE for the IEEE TNano in 2012-2014, IEEE TCAS I in 2004-2008 and for the IEEE TVLSI in 2001-2003. He was Guest Editor for the IEEE Computer special issue on Power-Aware Computing in December 2003 and a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Circuits and Systems (CAS) Society in 2012-2013 and 2004-2005, and for the Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS) in 2007-2008. Prof. Stan is a fellow of the IEEE, a member of ACM, and of Eta Kappa Nu, Phi Kappa Phi and Sigma Xi. His h-index is 47 and his i10-index is 116.
