Todor Stefanov is an associate professor in the Leiden Embedded Research Center (LERC) of the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (LIACS) at Leiden University since April 2014. He received the Dipl.Ing. and M.Sc. degrees in computer engineering from the Technical University of Sofia, Bulgaria, in 1998 and the Ph.D. degree in computer science from Leiden University, The Netherlands, in 2004. From 1998 until May 2000, he was a Research and Development Engineer with Innovative Micro Systems, Ltd., Sofia, where he worked on designing application specific microprocessor IP cores as well as on the development of a reconfigurable MicroSystems-on-Silicon In-Circuit Emulator based on FPGAs. From June 2000 until Aug. 2007, he was with LIACS, where he was a Research Assistant (PhD student) and a PostDoc Researcher in the LERC group. From Sept. 2007 until Sept. 2008, he was a Senior Researcher at the Computer Engineering Lab, Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands. From Oct. 2008 until March 2014, he was an assistant professor in the LERC group.
Todor Stefanov is the head of the LERC group, a medium-size research group which has a strong track record in the area of system-level modelling and synthesis, programming, and implementation of heterogeneous MP-SoCs. This is demonstrated by his active participation in a large number of national and international big research projects in this field. He (co-)authored more than 60 scientific papers. He is a recipient of the 2009 IEEE TCAD DONALD O. PEDERSON BEST PAPER AWARD for the journal article "Systematic and Automated Multi-processor System Design, Programming, and Implementation" published in IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems (TCAD), vol. 27, No. 3, pp. 542-555, March 2008. He is an associate editor of the International Journal of Reconfigurable Computing. Also, he serves on the organizational committees of several leading conferences and workshops, such as DATE, ACM/IEEE CODES+ISSS, RTSS, IEEE ICCD, IEEE/IFIP VLSI-SoC, ESTIMedia (as PC member), and ACM SCOPES, ESTIMedia (as Program Chair).
