fischettiDr. Massimo (Max) V. Fischetti received the Ph.D. degree in Physics from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1978. From 1983 until 2005 he was a Research Staff Member at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York, working on the theory of electron transport in semiconductors and insulators, on Monte Carlo simulation of semiconductor devices, and on quantum transport in small structures. From 2005 until 2010 he was full professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and in 2010 he joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas as Texas Instruments Distinguished Professor in Nanoelectronics. Here, Dr. Fischetti has shifted his interests to the study of the electronic properties of low-dimensionality structures and topological insulators. Prof. Fischetti is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and was a co-recipient of the 2011 IEEE Cledo Brunetti Award for his work on the physics of electron transport in solids.
