Tadahiro Kuroda received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, in 1999. In 1982, he joined Toshiba Corporation. From 1988 to 1990, he was a Visiting Scholar with the University of California, Berkeley, where he conducted research in the field of VLSI CAD. In 1990, he was back to Toshiba. In 2000, he moved to Keio University, Yokohama, Japan, where he has been a professor since 2002. He was a Visiting MacKay Professor at the University of California, Berkeley in 2007. His research interests include low-power, high-speed CMOS design, 3D integration by inductive/EM-coupling, and artificial intelligence. He has published more than 200 technical publications, including 37 ISSCC papers, 25 VLSI Symposia papers, 19 CICC papers and 17 A-SSCC papers. He wrote 22 books/chapters and filed more than 200 patents. Dr. Kuroda serves as the General Chairman for Symposium on VLSI Technology and Circuits, and SC Chair for A-SSCC. He is a recipient of the 2005 P&I Patent of the Year Award, the 2009 IEICE Achievement Award, and the 2011 IEICE Society Award. He was an elected AdCom member, a Distinguished Lecturer, and a representative of Region 10 for the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. He is an IEEE Fellow and an IEICE Fellow.
