He has been with the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA, since 1988, where he is currently a Distinguished McKnight University Professor and an Edgar F. Johnson Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He has published over 575 papers, is the inventor or co-inventor of 29 patents, has authored the textbook VLSI Digital Signal Processing Systems (New York, NY, USA: Wiley, 1999), and co-edited the reference book Digital Signal Processing for Multimedia Systems (Boca Raton, FL, USA: CRC Press, 1999). His current research interests include the VLSI architecture design and implementation of signal processing, communications and biomedical systems, error control coders and cryptography architectures, high-speed transceivers, stochastic computing, secure computing, and molecular computing. He is also currently working on intelligent classification of biomedical signals and images, for applications such as seizure prediction and detection, schizophrenia classification, biomarkers for mental disorders, brain connectivity, and diabetic retinopathy screening.

Dr. Parhi has served on the Editorial Boards of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS PART I AND PART II, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON VERY LARGE SCALE INTEGRATION (VLSI) SYSTEMS, IEEE TRANSACTION ON SIGNAL PROCESSING, the IEEE SIGNAL PROCESSING LETTERS, and the IEEE SIGNAL PROCESSING MAGAZINE, and served as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS PART I from 2004 to 2005. He currently serves on the Editorial Board of the Springer Journal of Signal Processing Systems. He has served as the Technical Program Co-Chair of the 1995 IEEE VLSI Signal Processing Workshop and the 1996 Application Specific Systems, Architectures, and Processors Conference, and as the General Chair of the 2002 IEEE Workshop on Signal Processing Systems. He was a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society from 1996 to 1998. He served as a Board of Governors Elected Member of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society from 2005 to 2007. He is a recipient of numerous awards, including the 2013 Distinguished Alumnus Award from IIT Kharagpur, the 2013 Graduate/ Professional Teaching Award from the University of Minnesota, the 2012 Charles A. Desoer Technical Achievement Award from the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, the 2004 F. E. Terman Award from the American Society of Engineering Education, the 2003 IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Technical Field Award, the 2001 IEEE W. R. G. Baker Prize Paper Award, and the Golden Jubilee Medal from the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society in 2000.
