SSCS Chip Chat
Dr Shantanu Chakrabartty is a professor at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St Louis.
Dr Chakrabartty's research seeks to approach fundamental limits of energy efficiency, sensing and resolution. We talk about self-powered sensors, cyborg insects, and thermodynamically-driven circuits. There's also some advice for those who are starting out on their academic careers on how best to go about it.
