Dr. Gerhard Klimeck is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University since Dec. 2003. Since May 2009 he serves as the Director of the National Science Foundation Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN) which he led previously led as Technical Director. NCN is operating nanoHUB.org as a community resource for over 100,000 annual users. Before he was the technical group supervisor of the Applied Cluster Computing Technologies Group since April 2002 and a Principal member at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory since Sept. 2001 after joining JPL in February 1998 as a Senior member technical staff. Previously he was a member of technical staff at the Central Research Lab of Texas Instruments (which transitioned to the Applied Research Laboratory of Raytheon). Dr. Klimeck received his Ph.D. in 1994 from Purdue University where he studied electron transport through quantum dots, resonant tunneling diodes and 2-D electron gases. His research for his German electrical engineering degree which he obtained in 1990 from Ruhr-University Bochum concerned the study of laser noise propagation. Dr. Klimeck's work is documented in over 250 peer reviewed publications and over 400 conference presentations, over invited 100 seminars, and over 70 technical reviews. He is a senior member of IEEE, and member of APS, HKN and TBP.
