Dr. Neil Goldsman, co-founder, President,
and professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering
Department at the University of Maryland at College Park.
At the University, Dr. Goldsman directs the Mixed Signal VLSI
Design Laboratory, Distributed Sensor and Communication
Networks Group, and the Semiconductor Simulation Laboratory.
His recent work has focused on ad-hoc sensor networks, high
temperature and cryogenic electronics, and semiconductor
device modeling. He regularly serves on the executive,
technical and organizing committees of leading international
professional conferences. He has served as both the conference
chair and the symposium chair of the International
Semiconductor Device Research Symposium. For the International
Conference on Simulation of Semiconductor Processes and Devices,
Dr. Goldsman has served as the chair of the Device Physics
subcommittee, and regularly serves on the technical committee.
Prof. Goldsman was the technical director for the Maryland
Governor's Institute of Technology program. His research has
attracted more than $4 million of support to the University
of Maryland. His work has been sponsored by leading
governmental and industrial organizations including NSF, SRC,
NSA, ARL, ONR, ARO, DHS, NIH, Intel Corporation and LSI Logic
Corporation. Dr. Goldsman is the co-recipient of the IEEE
Dasher Award; the NSF Research Initiation Award; the
University of Maryland's George Corcoran award; Invention of
the Year and Business Plan Awards; and Cornell University's
Post Foundation Scholarship. Goldsman has published more than
one hundred fifty peer-reviewed technical papers, and
supervised the design of over fifty ICs. He has authored two
educational texts in electronics that have been used for two
courses at the University of Maryland. Recently, Dr. Goldsman
has focused on commercializing his research, whereupon he
received 7 patents in the last several years. Dr. Goldsman is
also a serial entrepreneur. In 2004, Dr. Goldsman and a
colleague founded TRX Systems, where he served as president.
In 2007 he sold his portion of TRX, and focused on
establishing two new high-tech companies. Dr. Goldsman
received his Ph.D. from Cornell University with a minor in
Applied Physics and major in Electrical Engineering.
