Mario R. Casu received the laurea degree summa cum laude in electronics engineering and the Ph.D. degree in electronics and communications engineering from the Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy, in 1998 and 2001, respectively. He is currently an associate professor in the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications of the Politecnico di Torino.
His current research interests are Systems-on-Chip with specialized accelerators, System-level design and design methodology for FPGAs and ASICs, Embedded Machine Learning, and Circuits and Systems for Microwave Imaging. He is also interested in the design of circuits, systems, and platforms for industrial applications (biomedical, automotive, food). His past work focused mostly on latency-insensitive design of Systems-on-Chip (SoC) and on Networks-on-Chip.
In 2010-2011 he visited the system-level design research group of Prof. Luca Carloni in the department of Computer Science at Columbia University, where he worked on the design of SoC platforms with energy-efficient specialized accelerators. In 2017 he visited the Green-IC group of Prof. Massimo Alioto at the National University of Singapore (NUS) to work on the design of specialized on-chip accelerators for Machine Learning.
He was involved in 9 national academic research projects (of which 2 as principal investigator), 2 European academic research projects, and 7 national and international industrial projects (of which 2 as principal investigator).
He authored or co-authored more than 120 scientific papers.
He regularly serves as a reviewer for peer-reviewed journals and in the technical program committee of international conferences (among which DAC, ICCAD, DATE).
