Mike Schwarz - EDS Newsletter Regional Editor
Mike Schwarz (M'15-SM'18) received his Ph.D. with honors from the Universitate Rovira i Virgili on the subject of compact modeling of Schottky barrier multiple-gate FETs. He was the recipient of the Friedrich Dessauer Prize for the best diploma thesis about multiclass support vector machines in 2008, and the URV Graduated Student Meeting on Electronic Engineering Award for the best oral presentation for a paper about an analytical model for the electric field in Schottky barrier double-gate MOSFETs in 2010.
From 2013-2020 he was with the Robert Bosch GmbH, working with the RnD department on design, layout, modeling and process and device simulation of MEMS sensors and systems. From 2016-2020 he was lead of the diode design and process-/device simulation in the MEMS RnD department. In 2018 he became IEEE Senior Member. Since 2020 he is with the TH Mittelhessen - University of Applied Sciences as Professor for "Embedded Systems and Simulation.". His current research interests are Schottky barrier MOSFET devices, neuropmorphic devices, compact modeling and cryogenic applications.
Mayank Shrivastava - Compound Semiconductor Devices
Prof. Mayank Shrivastava is a faculty member at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, and co-founder of AGNIT Semiconductors Pvt. Ltd. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (2010). For his PhD work, he received Excellence in Research award and the Industrial Impact award from IIT Bombay in 2010. He is among the first recipients of the Indian section of the American TR35 award (2010) and the first Indian to receive IEEE EDS Early Career Award (2015). He is the recipient of prestigious DST Swarnjayanti Fellowship (2021), Abdul Kalam Technology Innovation National Fellowship from INAE-SERB (2021) and VASVIK award (2021). He has received several other national awards and honours of high repute, like the National Academy of Sciences, India, (NASI) Young Scientist Platinum Jubilee Award – 2018; Indian National Academy of Science (INSA) Young Scientist Award - 2018; Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE) Innovator Entrepreneur Award 2018 (Special commendation); Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE) Young Engineer Award - 2017; INAE Young Associate (since 2017); Indian Academy of Sciences (IASc), Young Associate, 2018 – 2023; Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY), Young Faculty Fellowship. Besides, he received best paper awards from several international conferences like Intel Corporation Asia academic forum, VLSI design Conference and EOSESD Symposium. Prof Shrivastava broadly works on applications of emerging materials like Gallium Nitride (GaN), atomically thin two-dimensional materials like Graphene and TMDCs, in electronic and electro-optic devices working closer to its fundamental limits (like the ability to handle extreme powers, ability to work at THz like ultra-high frequencies, or ability to compute information in unconventional ways). Currently, his group is developing few-atom thick devices & circuits, GaN-based ultra-high-power devices with high reliability, and devices/circuits for operation at THz frequencies. Besides, his group also works on developing novel ESD and High Voltage devices in advanced CMOS nodes. He had held visiting positions in Inﬁneon Technologies, Munich, Germany, from April 2008 to October 2008 and again in May 2010 to July 2010. He worked for Inﬁneon Technologies, East Fishkill, NY, USA; IBM Microelectronics, Burlington, VT, USA; Intel Mobile Communications, Hopewell Junction, NY, USA; Intel Corp, Mobile and Communications Group, Munich, Germany between 2010 and 2013.
