Pop Joins Stanford EE Faculty
Stanford Electrical Engineering is pleased to welcome Associate Professor Eric Pop to its faculty ranks. Prior to joining the EE faculty in July 2013, he was with the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), first as an Assistant Professor (2007-12) and then as an Associate Professor with tenure (2012-13).
His research interests include energy efficient electronics, novel 2-D and 1-D devices and materials, and nanoscale energy conversion and harvesting. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford (2005), and his MS/BS in EECS and BS in Physics from MIT (1999). From 2005-2007, he did post-doctoral work at Stanford, and then worked at Intel on nonvolatile memory before joining the faculty at UIUC.
His awards include the 2010 Presidential (PECASE) Award from the White House, the highest honor given by the US government to early-career scientists and engineers. He is also a recipient of the ONR Young Investigator Award (2010), the NSF CAREER Award (2010), the AFOSR Young Investigator Award (2010), the DARPA Young Faculty Award (2008), the Arnold O. Beckman Research Award (2007), and several best paper/poster and teaching/advising awards. He is presently the Technical Program Chair for the IEEE Device Research Conference (DRC), and has also served on program committees of the IEDM, APS, ISDRS, and Nano-DDS conferences. He is an IEEE Senior member, and a member of MRS and APS.
