Prof. Eric Pop joined the Electrical Engineering (EE) faculty at Stanford in July 2013. Previously he was with the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, first as an Assistant Professor (2007-12) and then as an Associate Professor with tenure (2012-13). His research interests are in energy efficient electronics, novel 2-D and 1-D devices and materials, nanoscale energy conversion and harvesting. He received his Ph.D. in EE from Stanford (2005), M.Eng./B.S. in EE and B.S. in Physics from MIT (1999). Between 2005-2007, he did post-doctoral work at Stanford, then worked at Intel on nonvolatile memory. His awards include the 2010 Presidential (PECASE) award from the White House, the highest honor given by the US government to Early-Career Scientists and Engineers. He is also a recipient of the ONR Young Investigator Award (2010), the NSF CAREER Award (2010), the AFOSR Young Investigator Award (2010), the DARPA Young Faculty Award (2008), the Arnold O. Beckman Research Award (2007), several best paper/poster and teaching/advising awards. He is presently the Technical Program Chair for the IEEE Device Research Conference (DRC), and has served on program committees of the IEDM, APS, ISDRS, and Nano-DDS conferences. He is an IEEE Senior member, and a member of MRS, APS and AAAS.
