Dr. David L. Pulfrey -- Website
EECE Professor, Group Leader
           D.L. Pulfrey received the B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Manchester, England in 1965 and 1968, respectively. Since 1968 he has been on the faculty in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C., Canada; he was the inaugural winner of UBC's Teaching Prize for Engineering in 1990. He is the author of "Photovoltaic Power Generation" (Van Nostrand Reinhold, 1979), and, with G. Tarr, "Introduction to Microelectronic Devices" (Prentice-Hall, 1989). His research area is semiconductor device modeling, presently with emphasis on numerical analyses of, and compact models for, carbon nanotube transistors. He was elected Fellow IEEE in 2000 for contributions to the modeling of heterojunction bipolar semiconductor devices, and Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering in 2003 for outstanding contributions to teaching and research.

George B. Abadir -- Website
          George B. Abadir received his B.A.Sc. degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering from the Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt in 2000, and M.Sc. of Engineering Physics in 2005 also from Ain Shams University. His research interests include solid state physics, semiconductor device physics, quantum transport. His professional career includes working as a TA of engineering physics in Ain Shams University between Sept.2000 and July 2006, and working as a part time software engineer for Mentor Graphics Egypt from October 2001 to July 2003 and from August 2004 to April 2006.

Mohammad Ali Mahmoudzadeh -- Website
           Ali Mahmoudzadeh has received his B.Sc degree from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, and joined Prof.Pulrfrey's group as graduate student in Sep, 2006. He had worked as Research assistant of Prof. Rashidian at Micro Technology Lab of Sharif University of Technology , Spring 2004-Summer 2006 during his study.Ali enjoys photograohy and is trying to improve his skill in badminton and swimming.

Li Chen
           Li Chen received his B.E degree in School of Electronic Information
from Wuhan University , China and joined the Nanoelectronics Group in
January, 2007. He has worked as a RA in Artificial Intelligence at
Network Group Wuhan University. His hobby includes reading especially
science fictions and cycling.


Dylan L. McGuire
           D.L. McGuire recieved his B.A.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering with Dean's honours from the University of Waterloo, Canada in 2004, and completed his M.A.Sc. in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia in 2006. Mr. McGuire's research focuses on the theory and modeling of nanoscale electronic devices, with particular interest in carbon nanotubes. His previous industry experience includes integrated circuit design at Qualcomm, Inc. and digital hardware design at both Agilent, Inc. and Sierra Wireless, Inc. Dylan still enjoys sailing, surfing, skiing, and the west coast life.

Leonardo C. Castro -- Website
          L.C. Castro received his B.A.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of British Columbia, Canada in 2001, and completed the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering at the same university in 2006. His academic and research interests involve semiconductor device modeling, particularly its application to nanoelectronic devices. He has also had previous work experience as a software engineer at Nortel Networks and Motorola.

David L. John -- Website
          From 1991 to 1997, D.L. John was a professional technical director for live theatre and dance productions across Canada, the United States, and in Europe. In 1997, he began his engineering training, and developed an interest in utilizing the techniques of applied mathematics for the modeling of emerging electronic devices. He received the B.A.Sc. degree in Engineering Physics with Honours from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada, in 2002, and completed the Ph.D. degree in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at UBC in 2006 under the auspices of the Institute of Applied Mathematics.

Jason P. Clifford
          J.P. Clifford received the B.A.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering in 2002 from the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, Canada. He completed his M.A.Sc. in Electrical Engineering in December 2003. The focus of his work was on developing compact models for carbon nanotube transistors using numerical methods.
