Meet our Speakers at the Tutorials special session Vol. I

On Monday July 8, IEEE NANO 2024 will offer a day full of tutorials, whic are essentially in-depth lectures or series of lectures aimed at providing a comprehensive understanding of a particular research area, rather than focusing solely on the presenter’s own work.

Today, we are thrilled to announce Prof. M. P. Anantram from the University of Washington (USA) as one of our esteemed Tutorial Speakers for IEEE NANO 2024.

Prof. M. P. Anantram is one of our tutorial speakers at IEEE NANO2024. He is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle. Prior to this, he was a Professor at the University of Waterloo, Canada, and worked at the Center for Nanotechnology at the NASA Ames Research Center. He is a leading expert on algorithms and quantum mechanical methods to model biomolecules, nanoscale materials and devices, having recently co-authored a textbook titled Quantum Mechanics for Engineers and Material Scientists. 

In this interview, Prof. Anantram discusses with IEEE NANO2024 Publicity Committee member Dr. Luiz Felipe Aguinsky from the Integrated Systems Laboratory (IIS) of ETH Zürich his career path, including the important role played by the IEEE NTC.
