Gregory Snider was born in Riverside, CA.  He received his BSEE degree from the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona in 1983.  From 1983 to 1985, he worked for the Motorola Government Electronics Group on integrated circuit design.  He received the MSEE and PhD degrees from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1987 and 1991, where his dissertation research was on the design and fabrication of quantum point contacts. As a post-doc from 1991 to 1993 in the Applied and Engineering Physics Department at Cornell University, he worked on ballistic transport devices.  From 1993 to 1994, he worked for Galileo Electro-Optics Corporation on dry-etching techniques for the fabrication of microchannel plates.  In 1994 he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre, serving as Assistant Professor until 2000, as Associate Professor from 2000 to 2005, and as Professor since 2005.  His current topics of research concentrate on the area of nanoelectronics and fabrication, molecular electronics, and the issues of the fundamental limits of dissipation in computation.  He is a senior member of the IEEE, and a member of the American Physical Society and the American Society of Engineering Education.  He has authored or co-authored over 100 journal publications and over 140 conference presentations.
