Regions & Chapters Committee
The EDS regions and chapters team is intended to help develop chapters in all regions through continuous interaction between the EDS VP of Regions and Chapters and the EDS Sub Committee for Regions and chapters (SRC). The SRC team interacts with chapters in their growth, program planning and development including guiding our chapters to achieve self-sustainability. The Regional SRC team members are listed below.

Biography: Mansun Chan (S’92-M’95-SM’01-F’13) received Ph.D. degrees from the UC, Berkeley in 1995. He is one of the major contributors to the unified BSIM model for SPICE, which has been accepted by most US companies and the Compact Model Council (CMC) as the first industrial standard MOSFET model. In January 1996, he has joined the EEE faculty at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. After that, he developed a SOI MOSFET model, which has been adopted by UC Berkeley as the core of the BSIMSOI model. Between July 2001 and December 2002, he was a Visiting Professor at University of California at Berkeley and the Co-director of the BSIM program. In this capacity, he has successfully completed the technology transfer of BSIM3SOI to be the first industrial standard SOI MOSFET model. In addition to device modeling, Prof. Chan’s current research interests also include nano-transistor fabrication technology, carbon-based device physics, printable transistors, 3D integrated circuits, bio-sensors and cloud computing based simulation platform. He is current working on an interactive modeling and online simulation (i-MOS) platform to facilitate the interactions between model developers and circuit designers using the Internet technology.
Prof. Chan is a recipient of the UC Regents Fellowship, Golden Keys Scholarship for Academic Excellence, SRC Inventor Recognition Award, Rockwell Research Fellowship, R&D 100 award (for the BSIM3v3 project), Teaching Excellence Appreciation award, Distinguished Teaching Award and the Shenzhen City Technology Innovation Award by the Chinese Government. He is a Fellow and Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE.

He also earned another MS from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Bangladesh in 1989 and BS from BUET in 1987. Prof. Haque started his academic career as a lecturer in the EEE Department, BUET. He was a professor in the same department until December 2005. He was a Visiting Researcher with the Research Center for Quantum Effect Electronics, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, from 2002 to 2004. Prof. Haque has also been a Visiting Faculty Member with Clarkson University (1997, 1998 and 2001), University of Connecticut, Storrs (1999), and the Tokyo Institute of Technology (2005). Prof. Haque’s research interests are in physics, modeling, simulation, and characterization of nano-scale electronic and photonic devices. His current activities include modeling and characterization of MOSFETs on high-mobility substrates, compact modeling of MOSFETs and investigation of novel properties of strained GaInAsP low dimensional structures. He is also interested in engineering education. Prof. Haque has published around 40 papers in refereed international journals. Prof. Haque is a senior member of IEEE and is a life member of Bangladesh Physical Society. He is the founding Chair of IEEE Electron Devices Society, Bangladesh Chapter. Prof. Haque has been serving as a Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE Electron Devices Society since 2009. He is the recipient of the University Grants Commission Award 2006 for research in engineering and technology.
