Competing Policy Choices at the Intersection of Energy and Climate Change – An Engineer’s Role
03 Feb 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Suresh V. Garimella
I will explore the tension between the seemingly contradictory but equally critical needs of energy security and climate change mitigation, and discuss the potential of renewable sources. I will highlight the role of engineers and scientists in informing this confusing policy landscape.

Thermal Microsystems for On-Chip Thermal Engineering
04 Apr 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Suresh V. Garimella
Electro-thermal co-design at the micro- and nano-scales is critical for
achieving desired performance and reliability in microelectronic circuits.
Emerging thermal microsystems technologies for this application area are
discussed, with specific examples including a novel micromechanical
electro-hydrodynamic micropump, electrowetting for fluidic actuation and
site-specific thermal control, ion-driven airflow, and miniature
piezoelectrically actuated cantilevers for cooling and sensing. Fundamental
research into enabling technologies for such microsystems, conducted by the
speaker’s group under the framework of the National Science Foundation
Compact, High-Performance Cooling Technologies Research Center, is
