  • Biography

    Toshikazu (Toshi) Nishida is currently an associate professor in
    the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and an
    Affiliate Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and
    Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at the University of Florida,
    Gainesville, Florida. He is a founding member of the
    Interdisciplinary Microsystems Group at the University of Florida.
    His research interests include solid-state physical sensors and
    actuators, transducer noise, strained semiconductor devices, and
    reliability physics of semiconductor devices. He and his students
    are currently investigating strain effects in piezoresistive
    microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) transducers and advanced CMOS
    devices, noise mechanisms in piezoresistive MEMS transducers, MEMS
    piezoelectric transducers for vibrational energy reclamation, MEMS
    capacitive microphones, and biomedical applications of MEMS.

    He received his Ph.D. (1988) and M.S. degrees in Electrical and
    Computer engineering and B.S. degree in Engineering physics at the
    University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. With colleagues and
    students, he has received three best paper awards. He also received
    the 2003 College of Engineering Teacher of the Year award. He holds
    four U.S. patents.
