Gerhard Klimeck Dr. Gerhard Klimeck is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University and serves as the Associate Director for Technologies of the National Science Foundation Network for Computational Nanotechnology since Dec. 2003. For the NCN he has been directing the replacement of web-form driven online simulation on by fully interactive simulations. The change in technology resulted in a six-fold growth of simulation user numbers in just over 2 years to over 5,900 annual users. His research interest is in the quantum mechanical modeling of electron transport through nanoelectronic devices, parallel computing, and genetic algorithms. This interest drove the development of NEMO 1-D and NEMO3-D. Dr. Klimeck received his Ph.D. in 1994 from Purdue University and his German electrical engineering degree in 1990 from Ruhr-University Bochum.
