Saurabh Bagchi is a Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. His research interest is in dependable computing and distributed systems. He is the founding Director of a university-wide resilience center at Purdue called CRISP (2017-present) and PI of the Army's Artificial Intelligence Innovation Institute (A2I2) (2020-25) that spans 9 universities. He was selected to the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) (2020) and is a Fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) (2022). He is the recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Research Award (2018), the Adobe Faculty Award (2017, 2020, 2021), the AT&T Labs VURI Award (2016), the Google Faculty Award (2015), and the IBM Faculty Award (2014). He is elected to serve on IEEE Computer Society's Board of Governors (2022-24, previously 2017-20). He is an IEEE Computer Society Distinguished Contributor (2021) and Distinguished Visitor (2020), an IEEE Golden Core member (2018), an ACM Distinguished Scientist (2013), and a Distinguished Speaker for ACM (2012).

Saurabh is proudest of the 25 PhD students and 50 Masters thesis students who have graduated from his research group and who are in various stages of building wonderful careers in industry or academia. In his group, he and his students have way too much fun building and breaking real systems. Along the way this has led to 13 best paper awards or runners-up awards at IEEE/ACM conferences and a Test of Time Award. Saurabh serves as the founder and CTO of a cloud computing startup, KeyByte (2021). Saurabh received his MS and PhD degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his BS degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, all in Computer Science.
