Biography

Jason H. Anderson received the B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Manitoba, and the M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) from the University of Toronto (U of T). In 1997, Dr. Anderson joined Xilinx, Inc. in San Jose, California working on computer-aided design (CAD) tools for integrated circuits. From 2005 to 2008, he managed groups at Xilinx focused on placement, routing and strategic research and development projects. He became a Principal Engineer at Xilinx in 2007. He joined the ECE Department at U of T in 2008. His research interests include all aspects of CAD, architecture, circuits and applications for field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Dr. Anderson serves on the program committees of various international conferences, including the IEEE International Conference on Field-Programmable Technology (FPT), the ACM International Symposium on Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA), and the International Conference on Field-Programmable Logic and Applications (FPL). He served as General Chair of ACM FPGA 2018, Program Chair of ACM FPGA 2017, Program Co-Chair of FPL 2017, and Program Co-Chair of FPT 2012. He is Chief Scientific Advisor and Co-Founder of LegUp Computing Inc., a start-up spawned from his research in the ECE department.
