I am a Ph.D. student in the Electrical Engineering Department at Stanford University. My advisor is Prof. Jim Plummer. I work in the Center for Integrated Systems and the Stanford Nanofabrication Facility, and my research interest is in the general area of novel semiconductor devices.

I am currently researching band-to-band tunneling (BTBT) as a transport mechanism for low power devices. As opposed to drift/diffusion carrier transport mechanism in conventional MOSFETs, tunneling has no first order temperature dependence, and therefore offers the possiblity of steeper than kT/q subthreshold slopes.

My undergraduate research was on coupled dopant diffusion. The research was conducted under the advisement of Prof. Jim Plummer, Dr Peter Griffin and Dr Ant Ural (now a professor at University of Florida).


I completed a BS and MS in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University in June 2001. Since Fall 2003, I have been working on a PhD in Electrical Engineering. A list of classes that I have taken at Stanford can be found here.


My resume is available upon request.
