Bio

Dr. Burr received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology in 1996 under the supervision of Professor Demetri Psaltis. Since that time, Dr. Burr has worked at IBM Research -- Almaden in San Jose, California, where he is currently a Research Staff Member. He has worked in a number of diverse areas, including holographic data storage, photon echoes, computational electromagnetics, and nanophotonics. Dr. Burr's current research interests include storage class memory, non-volatile memories, computational lithography, and reprogrammable logic. A Senior Member of IEEE, Geoff is also a member of OSA, SPIE, MRS, Eta Kappa Nu, and Tau Beta Pi, and has served on the Editorial Team for the Emerging Research Devices section of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors since early 2012.
