Luca Carloni is Professor of Computer Science at Columbia University in the City of New York, where he leads the System-Level Design Group. He holds a Laurea Degree Summa cum Laude in Electronics Engineering from the University of Bologna, Italy, a Master of Science in Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California at Berkeley.

At Berkeley Luca was the 2002 recipient of the Demetri Angelakos Memorial Achievement Award in recognition of altruistic attitude towards fellow graduate students. Luca received the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation in 2006, was selected as an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow in 2008, received the ONR Young Investigator Award in 2010 and the IEEE CEDA Early Career Award in 2012. Luca is an IEEE Fellow (class of 2017).
His research interests include methodologies and tools for system-on-chip platforms with emphasis on system-level design and communication synthesis, design and optimization of networks-on-chip, embedded software and distributed embedded systems. Luca coauthored over one hundred and thirty refereed papers and is the holder of two patents. He received the best paper award at DATE’12 for the paper “Compositional System-Level Design Exploration with Planning of High-Level Synthesis” and at CloudCom’12 for the paper “A Broadband Embedded Computing System for MapReduce Utilizing Hadoop.” His ICCAD’99 paper “A Methodology for Correct-by-Construction Latency-Insensitive Design was selected for The Best of ICCAD, a collection of the best papers published at the IEEE International Conference on Computer-Aided Design from 1982 to 2002.
Luca is currently an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems. From 2006 to 2013 he has served as associate editor of the ACM Transactions in Embedded Computing Systems. He has served on the technical program committee of several conferences including DAC, DATE, ICCAD, and EMSOFT. In 2010 he served as technical program co-chair of the International Conference on Embedded Software (EMSOFT), the International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip (NOCS), and the International Conference on Formal Methods and Models for Codesign (MEMOCODE). He served as vice general chair (in 2012) and general chair (in 2013) of Embedded Systems Week (ESWeek), the premier event covering all aspects of embedded systems and software.
Luca was the co-leader of the Platform Architectures theme in the Gigascale Systems Research Center (GSRC) and participates in the Center for Future Architectures Research (C-FAR).
