Summary:
Mircea Stan is teaching and doing research in the areas of high-performance and low-power very large scale integration (VLSI), temperature-aware circuits and architecture, embedded systems, and nanoelectronics.

Background:
Mircea R. Stan received the Diploma in electronics and communications from the Politechnica University, Bucharest, Romania, in 1984 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in ECE from UMass Amherst, in 1994 and 1996, respectively. Since 1996, he has been with the Charles L. Brown ECE Department, where he is now a Professor. He has more than eight years of industrial experience, was a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley in 2004-2005, a visiting faculty member with IBM in 2000, and with Intel in 2002 and 1999. Dr. Stan received the NSF CAREER Award in 1997 and was coauthor on Best Paper Awards at ISQED 2008, GLSVLSI 2006, ISCA 2003, and SHAMAN 2002. He was the Chair of the VSA-TC of the IEEE CAS Society for 2006-2007, the General Chair for the 2006 ISLPED and for the 2004 GLSVLSI, the Technical Program Chair for the 2007 NanoNets and the 2005 ISLPED, on technical committees for numerous conferences, and an Associate Editor for the IEEE TCAS I from 2004 to 2007 and for the IEEE TVLSI from 2001 to 2003. He also was a distinguished lecturer for the IEEE SSCS Society from 2007 to 2008, and or the IEEE CAS Society from 2004 to 2005. He is a member of the IEEE, ACM, Eta Kappa Nu, Phi Kappa Phi, and Sigma Xi. He is also the faculty adviser to the UVa student branch of the IEEE.
