Biographical Sketch:

Debdeep Jena received the B. Tech. degree with a major in Electrical Engineering and a minor in Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur in 1998, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) in 2003.  He joined the faculty of the department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame in 2003.  His research and teaching interests are in the MBE growth and device applications of quantum semiconductor heterostructures (currently III-V nitride semiconductors), investigation of charge transport in nanostructured semiconducting materials such as graphene, nanowires and nanocrystals, and their device applications, and in the theory of charge, heat, and spin transport in nanomaterials.  He is the author on several journal publications, including articles in Science, Nature Journals, Physical Review Letters, Electron Device Letters, and Applied Physics Letters, among others.  He has received two best student paper awards in 2000 and 2002 for his Ph.D. dissertation research, the NSF CAREER award in 2007, the Joyce award for excellence in undergraduate teaching in 2010, the ISCS Young Scientist award in 2012, and an IBM Faculty award in 2012.
