Who I am
I am a research scientist at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) attached to Laboratoire of Informatique, Robotique, Microelectronics of Montpellier (LIRMM) in junction with University of Montpellier, France. I am also a permanent faculty member in the Microelectronics department at LIRMM. I am the recipient of Medaille de Bronze 2016 for CNRS INS2I - Section 7. For the 2016-17 academic year, I am an Academic Visitor at the Graphene Center, University of Cambridge, UK and Visiting Research Fellow at the Wolfson College, University of Cambridge, UK.
I received my Habilitation a Diriger des Recherches (HDR) at the University of Montpellier, France in 2015. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of California Santa Barbara, USA in 2009. I received BSEE and MSEE degrees from Bradley University, IL, USA and California State University at Long Beach, CA, USA in 2001 and 2003, respectively. From August 2009 to September 2010, I was with the Computing Division at Fermilab, IL, USA where I was the recipient of John Bardeen Fellowship Award. Previously, I have held several summer and visiting research positions: STMicroelectronics, FR (2008), IBM TJ Watson Research Center, Yoktown, NY, USA (2006, 2007), Mentor Graphics Corporation, CA, USA (2005), and Cadence Design Systems, CA, USA (2002-2004).
What I do
My current research activities are focused in four main topics:
modeling and simulation of nanoscale devices and interconnects for advanced CMOS and emerging technologies i.e. graphene, carbon nanotubes, nanoribbons, ferromagnetic, composites, etc.
physical design and optimization methods for energy efficient circuits and systems i.e. TSV-based 3D and monolithic 3D integration.
low power circuit- to architecture-level design for system-on-chip (SoC).
biomedical sensors, wearable and implanatable devices for health.
My research background is on low-power VLSI design, modeling & analysis, power & clock network design and optimization, and reliability analysis for nanometer scale devices.
