Dr. Bokor is the National Semiconductor Distinguished Professor of Engineering in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley. In 2012, he was named Associate Dean for Research in the UC Berkeley College of Engineering. From 2004 until 2012, Prof. Bokor held a joint appointment as Deputy Director for Science at the Molecular Foundry, a nanoscale science research center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories (LBNL). He currently holds a joint appointment as Senior Scientist in the Materials Science Division at LBNL. He received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1975, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1976 and 1980, respectively. From 1980 to 1993, he was at AT&T Bell Laboratories where he did research on a variety of topics in laser science, as well as semiconductor physics and technology, and held several management positions. He joined the Berkeley faculty in 1993. His current research activities include nanomagnetics/spintronics, carbon nanotube and graphene electronics, nanophotonics, novel techniques for nanofabrication, quantum information processing, and nano-electromechanical systems. He is a fellow of IEEE, APS, and OSA.
