Biomedical Engineering Computer Engineering Integrated Circuits and Systems
Duncan G. Elliott received his BASc degree in engineering science and PhD degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada, in 1998.
He is currently a Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Alberta. Previously, he was with Nortel in data communications, MO-SAID Technologies as a DRAM designer, and IBM Microelectronics as a contractor in application-specific memory design. He spent his last sabbatical at the MIT Microsystems Technology Laboratories. His research interests include logic-enhanced memories, computer architecture, 3-D IC architecture, high-speed circuits, and merged microfluidic-microelectronic systems.
Prof. Elliott is a member of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits, Circuits and Systems, Computer, and Communications Societies and the ACM. He was the 2001 winner of the Colton Medal in microelectronics for his work on Computational RAM, which has been commercialized.
