Arokia Nathan holds the Sumitomo/STS Chair of Nanotechnology at the London Centre for Nanotechnology, University College London. He is also the CTO of Ignis Innovation Inc., Waterloo, Canada, a company he founded to commercialize technology on thin film silicon backplanes on rigid and flexible substrates for large area electronics. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, in 1988. In 1987, he joined LSI Logic Corp., Santa Clara, CA where he worked on advanced multi-chip packaging techniques and related issues. Subsequently, he was at the Institute of Quantum Electronics, ETH Zürich, Switzerland. In 1989, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo. In 1995, he was a Visiting Professor at the Physical Electronics Laboratory, ETH Zürich. In 1997 he held the DALSA/NSERC Industrial Research Chair in sensor technology, and was a recipient of the 2001 Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council E.W.R. Steacie Fellowship. In 2004 he was awarded the Canada Research Chair in nano-scale flexible circuits. In 2005/2006, he was a Visiting Professor in the Engineering Department, University of Cambridge, UK, and later in 2006, he joined the London Centre for Nanotechnology and is a recipient of the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award . He has published extensively in the field of sensor technology and CAD, and thin film transistor electronics, and has over 40 patents filed/awarded. He is a co-author of two books, Microtransducer CAD and CCD Image Sensors in Deep-Ultraviolet, both published by Springer in 1999 and 2005, respectively, and serves on technical committees and editorial boards at various capacities.
