Biography

Suman Datta is the Freimann Chair of Engineering Professor. Suman received his Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, in 1995 and his Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering from the University of Cincinnati, USA, in 1999. He is exploring new materials, novel nanofabrication techniques, new classical and non-classical device structures for CMOS "enhancement" as well as for CMOS "replacement" for future energy efficient, high performance and fault-tolerant information processing systems. He is also interested in exploring correlated electron devices harnessing coupled phase transition phenomena in advanced oxide heterostructures.

Summary of Activities/Interests

Nanoelectronic device modeling, fabrication, characterization and their circuit applications for future energy efficient and high performance information processing systems; ultra low voltage computing applications for energy autonomous systems; millimeter wave integrated circuits; convergence between life sciences and solid-state technologies.
