Goldsman, Neil

Electrical and Computer Engineering
2307 A.V. Williams Bldg.

Neil Goldsman earned his Ph.D. at Cornell University. His recent nanofabrication and devices work has included Numerical Boltzmann/Schrodinger Equations: CAD of Quantum Effects in Nanoscale Semiconductors; and Design and Theory of Carbon Nanotube Diodes. He also recently worked on a MIPS contract with TRX Systems, Inc., of Lanham, Md., on indoor location and emergency alerting. He designed and developed technology to wirelessly track the location of firefighters, police and other public personnel inside buildings and structures. Other recent work includes energy-driven partitioning of signal processing algorithms in sensor networks; and MEMS-based piezoelectric microphones for biomedical applications.
