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 www.nanoHUB.org
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
