Dr. Mehdi Asheghi
Adjunct Professor Mehdi Asheghi was a founding member of this research group as a graduate student back in 1994. He completed his Ph.D. and postdoctoral studies at Stanford through research on nanoscale thermal engineering of microelectronic devices, including several highly cited papers on phonon conduction in silicon layers. He led a very well funded research program at Carnegie Mellon University (2000-2006) that focused on nanoscale thermal phenomena in semiconductor and data storage devices. At Stanford his research ranges from nanoscale memory technologies to two phase microfluidics. Dr. Asheghi is the author of more than 200 journal publications, fully-reviewed conference papers, and book chapters, and was technical program and was technical program and general chairs at ITHERM 2012, 2014 and InterPACK 2015 and 2017.
