Iuliana P. Radu is Director of Quantum and Exploratory Computing at imec. Her activities include work on beyond CMOS device concepts such as spintronic majority gates and wave computing and novel materials and their possible applications in the semiconductor industry. Quantum Computing includes work on qubit devices and the periphery circuits meant to control them. Prior to establishing the Beyond CMOS program at imec in 2013, she was a Marie Curie and FWO fellow at KU Leuven and imec. Her work encompassed devices using the metal to insulator transition, ionic and electronic transport in functional oxides, and devices with graphene and other 2D materials. Iuliana has received a PhD in Physics from MIT in 2009 where she searched for Majorana fermions in the quest to build very reliable qubits for Quantum Computing. She is an author on over 200 papers in leading peer-reviewed journals and conferences. She has given more than 40 invited talks at international conferences and seminars where she is a frequent speaker on quantum computing and exploratory devices for classical computing. She is currently sub-committee chair for IEDM’s Emerging Device Technology, and program committee member for SISC and SNW and ESSDERC.
