Vladimir Stojanović received the Dipl.Ing. degree from the University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia, in 1998, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA, in 2005. He is an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science with the University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA. He was also with Rambus, Inc., Los Altos, CA, USA, as a Principal Engineer from 2001 through 2004 and with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA, as an Associate Professor from 2005 to 2013. His research interests include design, modeling, and optimization of integrated systems, from CMOS-based VLSI blocks and interfaces to system design with emerging devices like NEM relays and silicon-photonics. He is also interested in design and implementation of energy-efficient electrical and optical networks, and digital communication techniques in high-speed interfaces and high-speed mixed-signal IC design. Dr. Stojanovic was an IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Distinguished Lecturer for the 2012–2013 term. He was the recipient of the 2006 IBM Faculty Partnership Award, and the 2009 NSF CAREER Award as well as the 2008 ICCAD William J. McCalla, 2008 IEEE Transactions on Advanced Packaging, and 2010 ISSCC Jack Raper Best Paper Awards.
