Dr. Das has been on the faculty at the Pennsylvania State University since 1986, and is currently a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. He received the Ph.D. degree in computer science from the Center for Advanced Computer Studies, University of Louisiana, in 1986.

Dr. Das's primary research interests include computer architecture, parallel and distributed computing, cluster systems, processor management in multiprocessors, performance evaluation and fault-tolerant computing. He has published extensively in these areas. Of late, he is working on multi-core/SoC systems, Network-on-Chip (NoC) microarchitectures, Internet QoS, multimedia servers, and mobile computing. He has served on the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Computers and IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems.
