Cornell ECE student receives Intel Ph.D. Fellowship

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

ECE Ph.D. student Biswajeet Guha has received an Intel Ph.D. Fellowship. The program awards fellowships to exceptional Ph.D. candidates pursuing leading-edge innovation in fields related to Intel's business and research interests. The selected students receiving this award are recognized as being amongst the best in their specific areas of research.

 “It is very motivating to see my research being recognized by the industry,” says Guha. “The Intel Fellowship also provides a great platform to meet and network with top industry leaders and get their feedback on my work.”

The goal of the Intel Ph.D. Fellowship Program is to advance innovation in key areas of technology, as well as develop a pipeline of world-class technical talent for Intel's future workforce and the global knowledge-based economy. To achieve this goal, Intel collaborates with strategic research universities worldwide to expand university curricula, engage in focused research, sponsor innovation competitions, and encourage student participation in research through their education.

Guha’s research is in Engineering Thermal Properties of Silicon Nanophotonic Structures. He received his B.Tech. in Electronics Eng. from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in 2008. As an undergraduate, he spent time at Fraunhofer Institute of Integrated Systems and Devices, Erlangen, Germany working on CMP metrology for next generation technology nodes. Currently he is working towards his Ph.D. in the Cornell Nanophotonics Group with Michal Lipson. He has worked extensively on temperature stabilization of silicon photonic devices. He has also demonstrated enhanced cooling of localized hotspots using near-field thermal radiation.
