Office of the Dean of Engineering
Reconfigurable computing, VLSI computer-aided design, sensor networks, radiolocation, computer architecture, security, embedded systems and optimization algorithms.
Professor Kastner’s current research interests explore the realm of embedded system design, in particular, the use of reconfigurable computing devices for digital signal processing. He has published over 70 technical articles, and is the author of the book, “Synthesis Techniques and Optimizations for Reconfigurable Systems”, available from Kluwer Academic Publishing (now Springer).
Ryan Kastner joined UCSD in 2007 as an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. Prior to that he was Kastner an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UC Santa Barbara where he served as Director of the Extensible, Programmable, Reconfigurable Embedded Systems (ExPRESS) group. He received a PhD in Computer Science (2002) at UCLA, a masters degree in engineering (2000) and bachelor degrees (BS) in both electrical engineering and computer engineering (1999), all from Northwestern University. He is a member of numerous conference technical committees including the International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD), the Design Automation Conference (DAC), Design, Automation and Test in Europe, GLOBECOM, the International Conference on Computer Design (ICCD), the Great Lakes Symposium on VLSI (GLSVLSI), the International Conference on Engineering of Reconfigurable Systems and Algorithms (ERSA) and the International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS). He serves on the editorial board for the Journal of Embedded Computing.
