P. Markondeya Raj
P. Markondeya Raj is an Associate Director at the 3D Systems Packaging Research Center (PRC), Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Ga, USA. At PRC, he provides leadership in the areas of power supply and RF component integration focusing on nanoscale ceramic and magnetodielectric (metal-ceramic nanocomposite and metal-polymer nanocomposite) materials for power conversion and integrity, high-speed digital packaging, RF/wireless sybsystems and modules, and fine pitch interconnections. He has more than 10 years of experience in several ceramic synthesis routes such as sol-gel, hydrothermal, Atomic Layer Deposition, and RF sputtering. He also has 15 years of experience in colloidal processing of metal and ceramic suspensions for nanocomposites and thick film processing. He managed and led several large government and industry funded research programs in these areas with a team of faculty, students, and engineers. He coauthored 3 books and 120 publications and has 3 patents with several pending. He received 7 “Best Paper” awards for his conference and journal publications which include the Distinguished Scholar Award from the Microbeam Analysis Society, IEEE Transactions of Advanced Packaging Commendable paper Award, IEEE Outstanding Technical Paper Award, and the Philips Best Paper Award. He is a Committee Member of the “RF Components” thrust in the CPMT, Electronics and Component Technology Conference and also actively involved with the IEEE Nanopackaging Technical Committee. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Rutgers University in 1999 in ceramic engineering, M.E. degree from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, and B.S. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (1993).
