Research Interests

Broad field of integrated circuits (ICs) and very large scale integration (VLSI) systems with emphasis on:

  • Circuit- and physical-level design methodologies for energy efficiency
  • 3D integrated circuits
  • Circuit and system design for IoT devices
  • Power delivery and clocking
  • Implantable electronics for healthcare

Book_coverEmre’s research is supported by National Science Foundation (NSF), Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), National Institute of Health (NIH)Simons Foundation, and Office of the Vice President for Research at Stony Brook University.

Emre is the leading author of a comprehensive tutorial book entitled High Performance Integrated Circuit Design (McGraw-Hill, September 2012, 17 chapters, 716 pages, table of contents), which unifies interconnect-centric design methodologies for nanoscale ICs. This book has been translated into Chinese by Electronic Industry Press in 2015.
