Biography

Ashok Goel is an associate professor of electrical engineering at Michigan Tech. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University in 1987. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

Goel's current research activities are focused on the design and development of nanotechnology circuits using nanoscale devices, such as single-electron transistors and quantum cells. He is also interested in the modeling of nanoscale interconnections using carbon nanotubes, nanowires, and quantum dot-based wireless interconnections. During his twenty-four years at Michigan Tech, his research has been supported by grants and contracts from the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Army Research Office, the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research, General Motors Research Laboratory, and the Michigan Space Grants Consortium.
