Sayeef Salahuddin is an assistant professor in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley. His research interests are in the field of electronic transport in small structures currently focusing on novel electronic and spintronic devices for low power logic and memory applications. Salahuddin introduced the concept of using interacting systems for ultra low energy switches, leading to the idea of negative capacitance transistors. He received the Kintarul Haque Gold Medal from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology in 2003, a Microelectronics Advanced Research Corporation / Focus Center Research Program Inventor Recognition Award in 2007, a UC Regents Junior Faculty Fellowship in 2009, a Hellman Faculty Fellowship in 2010, the NSF CAREER award in 2011, the IEEE Nanotechnology Early Career Award in 2012, an Air Force Office of Scientific Research Young Investigator Award in 2013, an Army Research Office Young Investigator Award in 2013 and best paper awards from the IEEE Transactions of VLSI Systems in 2013 and at the VLSI-TSA conference, 2013.
