Sandip Tiwari joined Cornell University in 1999 as Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Lester B. Knight Director of Cornell NanoScale Facility. Prior to that he was a Research Staff Member and Manager for Exploratory Devices and Device Modeling at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center.

He has held visiting and adjunct faculty appointments at University of Michigan (1988-89) and Columbia University (1993). He is a Fellow of IEEE and APS, and is a recipient of Young Scientist Award (18th Int'l. Symp. of GaAs & Related Compounds) and the Distinguished Alumni Award (IIT Kanpur). He is a past Associate Editor and Co-Guest Editor of IEEE Trans. on Electron Devices, is the founding Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology, and is author of the text-book "Compound Semiconductor Device Physics." Over his career, he has explored the subjects of microwave devices and circuits, high speed electronic devices, optoelectronics, small and low power devices and their circuits and technology.

His current research interests are in small devices and their circuits, in ideas and technologies that allow continuing evolution of microelectronics in functional integration, and in interesting offshoots of small structures in other areas using silicon technology as a foundation. These subjects include: experimental and theoretical investigations of ultra-small transistor structures, use of nano-structures through device applications of single electron and reduced density of states effects, development of circuits that connect the small structures with the CMOS world, low power circuits, and three-dimensional integration for logic, memory, analog, and mixed-signal applications.
