Hans Kosina


Hans Kosina received the Diplomingenieur degree in electrical engineering and PhD from the Technische Universität Wien in 1987 and 1992, respectively. He was with the Institute of Flexible Automation at the Technische Universität Wien for one year and then joined the Institute for Microelectronics, where he is currently an associate professor. He received the venia docendi in microelectronics in 1998. In the summer of 1993, he was a visiting scientist at Motorola Inc., Austin, Texas, and in the summer of 1999, a visiting scientist at Intel Corp., Santa Clara, California. Dr. Kosina served as a Technical Program Committee member in the IEEE International Workshop on Computational Electronics in 2003 and 2004 and was chairman of the 11th International Workshop on Computational Electronics held in Vienna in May 2006. He has served as the Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Circuits and Systems since January 2004. His current research interests include the device modeling of semiconductor devices, nanoelectronic devices, organic semiconductors and optoelectronic devices, the development of novel Monte Carlo algorithms for classical and quantum transport problems, and computer-aided engineering in ULSI-technology.
