Shaloo Rakheja

Shaloo Rakheja is an Assistant Professor in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New York University.  She received the B.Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian  Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, in 2005, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), Atlanta, in 2009 and 2012, respectively. She started as a Component Engineer at Intel, Bangalore and later worked as an Analog Engineer at Freescale Semiconductor, Noida from 2006 to 2007. Prior to joining NYU in 2015, she worked as a Postdoctoral Associate with Prof. Dimitri Antoniadis at Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 2013-2014. 

Over the last several years, Shaloo has co-authored several international conference and refereed journal publications. She has also co-authored four book chapters and contributed to the chapter on Emerging Interconnects in ITRS 2011. She received the Intel PhD Fellowship for the academic year 2011-2012. She also received the ECE Graduate Research Assistant Excellence Award for the academic year 2011-2012. In Nov. 2013, she was invited to present at the "Rising Stars" workshop organized by the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT.

Research Interests: Her research interests are in modeling and simulating electron transport in nanoscale transistors. She is also interested in novel, beyond-CMOS devices using alternate state variables, energy harvesting for sensor networks and other mobile devices, and flexible and transparent electronics.
