Tsu-Jae King Liu, Professor

Tsu-Jae King Liu received the B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1984, 1986 and 1994, respectively. She joined the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center as a Member of Research Staff in 1992, to research and develop polycrystalline-silicon thin-film transistor technologies for high-performance flat-panel display and imaging applications. During her tenure with Xerox PARC, she served as a Consulting Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. In August 1996, she joined the faculty of the University of California, at Berkeley, where she is now the Conexant Systems Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) and the Associate Chair of the Department. From 2000 to 2004 and from 2006 to 2008, she served as the Faculty Director of the UC Berkeley Microfabrication Laboratory. From 2008 through 2008, Professor King Liu was the Associate Dean for Research in the College of Engineering at UC Berkeley. From July 2004 through June 2006 she was Senior Director of Engineering in the Advanced Technology Group of Synopsys, Inc. (Mountain View, CA).

Sayeef Salahuddin, Assistant Professor

Sayeef Salahuddin received his B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from BUET (Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology) in 2003 and PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Purdue University in 2007. He joined the faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at University of California, Berkeley in 2008. His research interests are in the interdisciplinary field of electronic transport in nano structures currently focusing on novel electronic and spintronic devices for low power logic and memory applications. Salahuddin has championed the concept of using 'interacting systems' for switching, showing fundamental advantage of such systems over the conventional devices in terms of power dissipation.

Vivek Subramanian, Professor

He received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana State University, 1994, and his M.S. and PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1996 and 1998 respectively. Dr. Subramanian co-founded Matrix Semiconductor, Inc. in 1998. He joined the EECS faculty in 2000 and is currently an Associate Professor. He is also a founding technical advisor of Kovio, Inc. He has authored or co-authored more than 100 research publications and patents. Dr. Subramanian is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and has served on the technical committee for the Device Research Conference and the technical and executive committees for the International Electron Device Meeting. In 2002, he was nominated to Technology Review's list of top 100 young innovators (the TR100). In 2003, he was nominated to the National Academy of Engineering's "Frontiers of Engineering", and was awarded a National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award (CAREER). He received the EE Department Outstanding Teaching Award in 2006.
