EECS PhD Student Siddhartha Joshi has won the Best PhD Student Presentation Award at the 31st International Conference on VLSI Design (VLSID 2018), held Monday, January 8th through Wednesday, January 10th in Pune, India. His winning paper is entitled, "Power Characterization and Optimization of 3D CAMs for Tracking Triggers."

Advised by Prof. Seda Ogrenci-Memik, Siddhartha Joshi is a Ph.D. candidate in the Computer Engineering and Systems Laboratory at Northwestern University. He's working with Prof. Ogrenci-Memik, Dr. Ted Liu and Dr. James Hoff on a Vertically Integrated Pattern Recognition Associative Memory (VIPRAM) for fast track finding at the LHC. Joshi's research until now has focused on associative memory design and testing, and in fabrication and integration of thin-film thermocouples in 3D ICs for temperature measurement and thermal management.

Joshi attended B.I.T.S. Pilani for his undergraduate studies and worked at Intel in Hillsboro, Oregon U.S.A. in Dr. Chandramouli Kashyap's group with Dr. Chirayu Amin in 2016. Before joining Northwestern, he worked at C.E.R.N. Geneva Switzerland as a summer student.

VLSID 2018 is a premier VLSI Design conference, which featured regular paper sessions and full day tutorials given by experts. Topics included all areas of VLSI Design covering the latest innovations.
