Dr Scott Roy
Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering
University of Glasgow
Scott Roy obtained a B.Sc. in Physics and Electronic Engineering in 1987 from what was then the Department of Natural Philosophy at the University of Glasgow. He completed Ph.D studies in 1994, investigating "Engineering aspects of extended single electronic systems" in the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, under the supervision of Prof. John Barker.
In the late 90's he was a Research Assistant with Prof. John Barker and Prof. Asen Asenov on a number of projects, including design and construction of a DC-Hypermesh parallel processing machine, Monte Carlo simulation of Si:SiGe HMOS devices and InGaAs HEMTs for VLSI and RF applications, and the development of training programmes in semiconductor device physics using commercial simulators.
He is presently a Reader in the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering at the University of Glasgow, and a member of the Device Modelling and Microelectronics Systems Groups. He has published over 100 papers in the fields of device transport, Monte Carlo simulation, device scaling, bio-nanotechnology, and the development of practical compact models and circuit simulation techniques for nanoscale devices subject to variability. He serves on the programme committee of ULIS, and has been investigator or co-investigator on grants from SEMATECH, the EU, Fujitsu, and 11 EPSRC grants, 6 of which are currently active.
