Dr. P. M. Raj is an Associate Professor with ECE. His expertise is in the areas of packaging of electronic and bioelectronic systems, power-supply component integration, RF/5G components, integrated RF and power modules and fine-pitch interconnections. He is an adjunct faculty with the Georgia Institute of Technology, ECE Department and Packaging Research Center, where he co-lead several technical thrusts in electronic packaging, working with the whole electronic ecosystem, which includes semiconductor, packaging, material, tool and end-user companies. He is widely recognized for his contributions in integrated passive components and technology roadmaping, and also for promoting the role of nanomaterials and nanostructures for electronics packaging applications, as evident through his several industry partnerships, invited presentations, publications and awards.
His research led to ~290 publications, which include ~80 journal papers, 14 book chapters and 12 articles in widely circulated trade magazines, and more than 175 conference publications. He received 8 patents with several other provisional patents and invention disclosures. His papers received more than 20 best-paper awards. He has been a research faculty at GT-PRC for 19 years, where he mentored more than 25 MS and PhD students.
He is the Associate Editor for IEEE CPMT transactions and IEEE Nanotechnology magazine. He is the Co-Chair for the IEEE nanopackaging technical committee. He has been instrumental in forming the “Nanopackaging” technical sessions at the IEEE NANOTECHNOLOGY conference. He chaired power and RF component and module sessions at the IEEE Electronic Component and Technology Conference (ECTC). He also co-chaired high-temperature packaging sessions at the IEEE/SEMI/iNEMI Future Car Electronics workshop. He has been actively involved with the PSMA (power sources manufacturers Association) and takes pro-active role in shaping up power electronics sessions at APEC and PEIM conferences. He is also in the steering committee of IEEE EPS IoT Committee. He was reviewer for about 100 journal papers. Dr. Raj is also a STEM ambassador and frequently offers nanoscience and nanotechnology demonstrations at local schools and at Georgia Tech for K-12 field trips.
