Lab Presentation and Open Positions

The Laboratory for NanoIntegrated Systems (LNIS) research aims at developing low-power high-performance versatile computing systems by exploring the opportunities coming from novel EDA techniques and their links to emerging device technologies. Projects are carried out in an interdisciplinary team with a wide range of competences and in close collaboration with other labs and partners.

Prospective PhD and MSc/BSc students are encouraged to apply to the research group at the University of Utah.

Interested applicants shoud send a CV and a research statement by e-mail to Dr. Gaillardon at the following address:
