I am a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto. My research centers on computer hardware design and I am with the Computer Engineering Research Group.
I am the Director of Admissions and Recruitment for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), and am Faculty Advisor for the ECE Leaders of Tomorrow Working Group.
Professor Jason H. Anderson received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), University of Toronto in 2005. He received the M.A.Sc. degree from the University of Toronto, and the B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Manitoba.
In August 2008, Dr. Anderson joined the University of Toronto faculty as an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). He has received five ECE departmental teaching awards for excellence in undergraduate teaching (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013), and has also been nominated for the TVO Best Lecturer Competition (2009). In 2012, he received the Gordon R. Slemon Award for excellence in the teaching of design. In 2013, he received the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering Early Career Teaching Award. He received a best paper award at the IEEE FPT 2010 conference (co-authored with S. Birk and G. Steffan), a best paper award at the IEEE FPL 2011 conference (co-authored with M. Gort) and a best paper nomination at IEEE/ACM ASP-DAC 2011 (co-authored with Q. Wang). He is an inventor on over 20 issued U.S. patents, and he has co-authored over 40 research papers in refereed international journals and symposia.
From 1997 through 2008, Jason was with Xilinx, Inc, where he worked on the research and development (R&D) of automated synthesis tools and flows for Xilinx field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). From 1997-2001 and for 2006, he was based at Xilinx headquarters in San Jose, CA, USA. From 2001-2005 and from 2006-2008, he was at the Xilinx Toronto Development Centre. In 2000, he received the Xilinx Ross Freeman Award for Technical Innovation: the top innovation award given by Xilinx. Prior to joining the UofT, he was a Principal Engineer and Manager at Xilinx, leading an R&D group with emphasis on improving tool run-time, FPGA speed, area and power-efficiency.
Dr. Anderson serves on the technical program committees of several conferences, including the IEEE International Conference on Field-Programmable Technology (FPT), the IEEE International Conference on Field-Programmable Logic and Applications (FPL), and the ACM International Symposium on Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA). He is Technical Program Co-Chair for FPT 2012. Jason is a member of IEEE, ACM, and is a licensed Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) in the Province of Ontario.
