CNRS Research Scientist, LIRMM/University of Montpellier

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.
