Education

  • Ph.D. (University of Alabama)

Madhav Rao completed his Masters in Microelectronics from University of Arkansas in 2007 and Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from the University of Alabama in 2012. His major research contribution involves developing a solder based self assembly technology for 3D integration of VLSI circuits. He has published multiple journal articles and has given multiple talks on the same in international conferences. His other research interests include fabricating CNT (Carbon nanotubes) in through silicon vias, developing nanomagnetic devices to emulate logic gates, and developing human readabale audio for educational purposes.​
