Ali Shakouri is the Mary Jo and Robert L. Kirk Director of the Birck Nanotechnology Center and a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University. He received his Diplôme d'Ingénieur in 1990 from École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications in Paris, France and his Ph.D. in 1995 from California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA. He was a faculty at the University of California in Santa Cruz before moving to Purdue in 2011. His group studies nanoscale heat transport and electro thermal energy conversion. They have also developed and commercialized novel imaging techniques to obtain high resolution thermal maps of integrated circuits. He is applying similar methods to enable real-time monitoring of smart film manufacturing. He is working with two dozen faculty at Purdue from Colleges of Engineering, Science, Agriculture, Polytechnic and Pharmacy to manufacture low-cost smart internet-of-thing (IoT) devices and sensor network. As a part of Wabash Heartland Innovation Network (WHIN), they are developing community IoT testbeds to help create an epicenter for advanced manufacturing and high tech agriculture in the region surrounding Purdue.
