Dr. George Tulevski received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Columbia University in 2006. He was hired as a Research Staff Member at IBM’s TJ Watson Research Laboratory in 2008 where he currently works in the carbon nanoelectronics research group. He has co-authored over 50 journal publications and 30 patents in his field and is the recipient of numerous IBM technical awards.
Dr. Tulevski is also an Adjunct Professor in the Electrical Engineering department at Columbia University where he teaches a course on emerging nanoelectronic devices.

IBM Tech Talk, 2016
"Tulevski's solution was to bring chemistry in as a partner with engineering and nanotechnology."
"Instead, Tulevski and his team have figured out a way to “coax” the nanotubes into specific structures using chemistry."
"The team from IBM built a CNT transistor that showed no increase in electrical resistance with contact lengths from 300 nm to less than 10 nm."
"What Tulevski’s team is trying to do is create thousands—and eventually billions—of carbon nanotubes that function exactly the same way."
Chemical and Engineering News, 2015
"There are no guarantees that nanotube transistors can displace silicon technology or that they’ll even need to. Tulevski knows all of this, but he says there’s a lot to learn in the process of trying to build nanotube processors."
MIT Technology Review, 2015
"George Tulevski, a member of IBM’s carbon nanotube team, recently reviewed the challenges in ACS Nano."
The New York Times, 2015
"On Thursday, however, IBM scientists reported that they now believe they see a path around the wall. Writing in the journal Science, a team at the company’s Thomas J. Watson Research Center said it has found a new way to make transistors from parallel rows of carbon nanotubes."
The New Yorker, 2014
"Tulevski described nanotubes as a radical rethinking of how you build a chip."
The New York Times, 2012
"They used a process they described as “chemical self-assembly” to create patterned arrays in which nanotubes stick in some areas of the surface while leaving other areas untouched."
Chemical and Engineering News, 2005
"In the other study, Columbia University chemistry professor Colin Nuckolls, grad student George S. Tulevski, research scientist Michael L. Steigerwald, and their coworkers demonstrate that derivatized ruthenium surfaces can be used to catalyze olefin metathesis reactions."
