Suman Datta Joins College of Engineering as GRA Eminent Scholar
Top researcher in semiconductors and nanoelectronic devices will have roles in ECE and MSE.
Suman Datta, one of the nation’s top researchers in semiconductor and nanoelectronic device research, is joining Georgia Tech’s School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) as Joseph M. Pettit Chair and a Georgia Research Alliance (GRA) Eminent Scholar. He will also have a joint appointment with the School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). Datta is currently serving as a Georgia Tech adjunct professor while at the University of Notre Dame and will transition full time to Georgia Tech in the fall.
Datta is the Stinson Professor of Nanotechnology in Notre Dame’s Department of Electrical Engineering. He is the director of ASCENT (Applications and Systems-Driven Center for Energy-Efficient Integrated NanoTechnologies), a $40 million microelectronics research center funded by the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The center's mission is to provide breakthrough advances in foundational semiconductor materials, devices, and heterogenous integration technologies. ASCENT includes Notre Dame and 13 partner universities.
