More than 1,400,000  users in 172 countries annually participate in, a science and engineering gateway providing the capability to perform online simulation resources through a web browser without the installation of any software. nanoHUB is an online meeting place for simulation, research, collaboration, teaching, learning and publishing. Over 13,000 users run simulation software from their browser in nanoHUB’s science computing cloud. Cumulatively over 29,000 students in over 700 classes utilized nanoHUB simulations in classrooms and over 1,600 authors referenced nanoHUB in over 850 scientific publications with nanoHUB having an h-index of 70.  nanoHUB application tools are now listed in the Web of Science. The platform has spawned nanoHUB-U interfaces for online courses that are broadly accessible around the world.


Gerhard Klimeck is the Reilly Director of the Center for Predictive Materials and Devices (c-PRIMED) and the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN) and a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University.

He is a fellow of the Institute of Physics (IOP),a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS), a Fellow of IEEE and member of HKN and TBP.

He guides the technical developments and strategies of which annually serves over 320,000 users worldwide with on-line simulation, tutorials, and seminars.

Prof. Klimeck’s research interest is the modeling of nanoelectronic devices, bridging the gap between material science and device engineering, and impact studies through science gateways. He drives the development of the Nanoelectronic Modeling Tool NEMO5.

Dr. Klimeck was the Technical Group Supervisor of the High Performance Computing Group and a Principal Scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology. Previously he was a member of technical staff at the Central Research Lab of Texas Instruments where he served as manager and principal architect of the Nanoelectronic Modeling (NEMO 1-D) program. At JPL and Purdue Gerhard developed the Nanoelectronic Modeling tool (NEMO 3-D ) for multimillion atom simulations.

Dr. Klimeck received his Ph.D. in 1994 on Quantum Transport from Purdue University and his German electrical engineering degree in experimental studies of laser noise propagation in 1990 from Ruhr-University Bochum.

Dr. Klimeck’s work is documented in over 240 peer-reviewed journal and 190 proceedings publications and over 230 invited and 450 contributed conference presentations. His h-index is 41 on the Web of Science and 51 on Google Scholar.
