Eugenio Culurciello (S'97-M'99) received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2004 from the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD. He is an associate professor of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, the School of Mechanical Engineering, and of Psychological Sciences in the College of Health & Human Sciences at Purdue University, where he directs the ‘e-Lab’ laboratory. His research focus is in artificial vision systems, deep learning, hardware acceleration of vision algorithms. His research interests include: analog and mixed-mode integrated circuits for biomedical instrumentation, synthetic vision, bio-inspired sensory systems and networks, biological sensors, silicon-on-insulator design. Eugenio Culurciello is the recipient of The Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE (CASS), and is the author of the book "Silicon-on-Sapphire Circuits and Systems, Sensor and Biosensor interfaces" published by McGraw Hill in 2009, and "Biomedical Circuits and System, Integrated Instrumentation" published by Lulu in 2013. In 2013 Dr. Culurciello founded TeraDeep, a company focused on the design of deep neural network processors. In 2016 Dr. Culurciello founded FWDNXT,, to deliver the next generation of user interface via augmented reality, scene analysis and machine intelligence.
