Dr. Ali Keshavarzi joined DARPA in August 2020 as a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office (MTO). His research interests include technologies for low-power and high-performance computing, expanding to foundational building blocks of advanced devices, memories, circuits, and architectures for microsystems with embedded intelligence. These intelligent microsystems allow for taking compute to the data for locally processing the data at its source in the field, enabling Edge Intelligence.
Prior to his current role, Keshavarzi was the vice president of research and development and a technical fellow at Cypress Semiconductor. Prior to this, he held various senior R&D roles at GLOBALFOUNDRIES, TSMC, and Intel Corporation. Keshavarzi served as an adjunct professor at Stanford University, and was a visiting research scholar at University of California, Berkeley. He also served as an advisor to MTO prior to joining the office as a program manager.
Keshavarzi received his doctorate from Purdue University. He has over 65 granted patents and over 55 peer-reviewed papers with over 7,500 citations with an h-index of 43. He is a recipient of an Intel Achievement Award (IAA), Purdue University’s award of Outstanding Electrical and Computer Engineer (OECE), the IEEE ISSCC best panel award, the best-paper award at IEEE ITC conference, the most paper citation awards from DAC and IEDM, and the DAC award for top 10 most cited paper in DAC’s 50-year history. His IEDM FinFET paper in 2010 is in the top most cited papers in IEDM 60th anniversary.
