Klimeck is the Technical Director of the Network for Computational
Nanotechnology at Purdue University and a Professor of Electrical and Computer
Engineering since Dec. 2003. He was the
Technical Group Supervisor for the Applied Cluster Computing Technologies Group
and continues to hold his appointment as a Principal Member at the Jet
Propulsion Laboratory on a faculty part-time basis. His research interest is in
the modeling of nanoelectronic devices, parallel cluster computing, genetic
algorithms, and parallel image processing.
Gerhard developed the 3-D Nanoelectronic Modeling tool (NEMO 3-D) for
multimillion atom simulations and continues to expand NEMO 1-D. 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. Dr. Klimeck received his Ph.D. in 1994 from Purdue University and his German electrical engineering degree in 1990
from Ruhr-University Bochum. Dr.
Klimeck's work is documented in over 90 peer-reviewed publications and over 140
conference presentations. He is a member
of IEEE, APS, HKN and TBP. More information about his work can be found at
