Tushar Krishna is an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech. He serves as an Associate Director for the Center for Research into Novel Computing Hierarchies (CRNCH). He held the ON Semiconductor (Endowed) Junior Professorship from 2019-2021. 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 in 2015, Dr. Krishna spent a year as a researcher at the VSSAD group at Intel, Massachusetts.

Dr. Krishna’s research spans computer architecture, interconnection networks, networks-on-chip (NoC), and deep learning accelerators – with a focus on optimizing data movement in modern computing systems. His research is funded via multiple awards from NSF, DARPA, IARPA, Department of Energy, Intel, Google, Facebook, Qualcomm and TSMC. His papers have been cited over 11,000 times. Three of his papers have been selected for IEEE Micro’s Top Picks from Computer Architecture, one more received an honorable mention, and four have won best paper awards. He was inducted into the HPCA Hall of Fame in 2022. He received the “Class of 1940 Course Survey Teaching Effectiveness” Award from Georgia Tech in 2018 and the “Roger P. Webb Outstanding Junior Faculty Award” from the School of ECE in Georgia Tech in 2021.
