Biomedical Engineering and Electrical & Computer Engineering, Florida International University, Miami, USA
Dr. P. M. Raj ‘s expertise is in packaging of electronic and bioelectronic systems, with emphasis on nanoscale RF, power and neurosensor components, and active and passive integration in ultrathin embedded modules. He is an Associate Professor in BME and ECE at Florida International University, and Adjunct Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta. He demonstrated several electronic packaging technologies, working with the whole electronic ecosystem, which include several semiconductor, packaging and material, tool, and end-user companies. He co-lead the development of world’s first 3D glass LTE diversity module, and 3D glass antenna-integrated package module for 5G mm wave applications. He developed advanced substrate-integrated power inductors and power capacitors for integrated power modules and voltage regulators. His research led to 320 publications, which include 8 patents. He received more than 25 best-paper awards. He co-advised more than 30 MS and PhD students who are current leaders and technology pioneers in the electronic packaging industry. He is widely recognized for his contributions in integrated passive components and technology roadmapping, component integration for bioelectronic, power and RF modules, and also for promoting the role of nanomaterials and nanostructures for electronics packaging applications. He received his PhD from Rutgers University in 1999 in ceramic engineering, ME from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and BS from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (1993).
