Short Presentation

Pierre-Emmanuel Gaillardon is assistant professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department at The University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT and he leads the Laboratory for NanoIntegrated Systems (LNIS). He holds an Electrical Engineer degree from CPE-Lyon, France (2008), a M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from INSA Lyon, France (2008) and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from CEA-LETI, Grenoble, France and the University of Lyon, France (2011).

Prior to joining the University of Utah, he was a research associate at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland within the Laboratory of Integrated Systems (Prof. De Micheli). and a visiting research associate at Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, USA. Previously, he was research assistant at CEA-LETI, Grenoble, France. Prof. Gaillardon is recipient of the C-Innov 2011 best thesis award and the Nanoarch 2012 best paper award.

He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology. He has been serving as TPC member for many conferences, including DATE'15-16, DAC'16, Nanoarch'12-16, and is reviewer for several journals and funding agencies. He will serve as Topic co-chair "Emerging Technologies for Future Memories" for DATE'17. He is a senior member of the IEEE.

The research activities and interests of Prof. Gaillardon are currently focused on the development of reconfigurable logic architectures and digital circuits exploiting emerging device technologies and novel EDA techniques.
