2023 Aristotle Award

Presented to Dr. Mark Tehranipoor of the University of Florida


Dr. Mark Tehranipoor of the University of Florida has supervised nearly 30 dissertations, 17 post-docs/research professors, 7 masters, and 60 undergraduate students while currently supervising 29 PhDs/5 post-docs. ​

Prof. Tehranipoor has been funded by SRC for 19 straight years and counting. Every student from his group carried out multiple internships at SRC member and other tech companies (IBM, Intel, Texas Instruments, GF, AMD, Cisco, Mentor, Apple, NVIDIA, Oracle, Synopsys, Arm, Cadence, NXP, ANSYS, etc.). The students accepted full-time positions at these companies after graduation. These internships have led to several technology transfers to NXP, Qualcomm, Cisco, and Synopsys. Students make regular presentations to SRC industry liaisons seeking their feedback, as well as at TECHCON and sponsor contract reviews. Industry mentors from Intel, TI, NXP, IBM, etc. have served on thesis committees. Each Ph.D. student publishes (as the lead author) multiple papers in top conferences and highly reputable peer-reviewed journals before their thesis defense. PhD students have received best paper/presentation awards from journals and conferences such as ACM TODAES, DAC, DATE, VTS, HOST, PAINE, AsianHOST, TECHCON, and ISTFA for their thesis research. Liaisons (from TI, Intel, AMD, NXP) have co-authored papers with students before graduation. Prof. Tehranipoor proactively includes students in invention disclosures, resulting in 21 patents plus 23 pending disclosures, some on SRC projects.
