Damien QUERLIOZ (born in 1984) received his pre-doctoral training at Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, and at Ecole Supérieure d’Electricité. He graduated the Ph.D. degree from University Paris-Sud, in 2008. He was then a Postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University, USA, in 2009 and at Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique, France, in 2010. He recently joined the University of Paris-Sud as a permanent CNRS researcher, to develop new concepts in nanoelectronics relying on inspirations from Biology and machine learning. His research interests have also included the physics of advanced nanodevices and the development of novel architectures based on nano electronics. He has coauthored the book “The Wigner Monte-Carlo Method for Nanoelectronic Devices” (London: ISTE; Hoboken: Wiley, 2010) with Philippe Dollfus. He serves as expert in nanoelectronics at the French Observatory of Micro and Nanotechnology, and as Technical Program Committee member for the IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Nanoarchitectures 2011.
