Gerhard Klimeck Ph.D.
Dr. Klimeck's research interest is in the modeling of nanoelectronic devices, parallel cluster computing, and genetic algorithms.Gerhard Klimeck is the Technical Director of the Network for Computational Nanotechnology at Purdue University and a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering since Dec. 2003. He was the Technical Group Supervisor at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Gerhard developed the Nanoelectronic Modeling tool (NEMO 3-D) for multimillion atom simulations. Previously he was a member of technical staff at the Central Research Lab of Texas Instruments where he served as manager and principal architect of the Nanoelectronic Modeling (NEMO 1-D) program. Dr. Klimeck's work is documented in over 160 peer-reviewed publications and over 270 conference presentations. He is a senior member of IEEE and member of APS, HKN and TBP.
EducationDr. Klimeck received his Ph.D. in 1994 from Purdue University and his German electrical engineering degree in 1990 from Ruhr-University Bochum.
