The theme of TEDxPurdueU 2012 was “…innovation.” The speakers selected were Purdue students, alumni, and faculty whose stories shed unique light on various aspects of the creative process from idea conception to reality. Gerhard Klimeck spoke on Mythbusting Scientific Knowledge Transfer with nanoHUB.org at this event in March, 2012.
Gerhard Klimeck is the Director of nanoHUB/NCN (Network for Computational Nanotechnology) and a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University.
The NCN provides on-line simulation resources to the Nanotechnology Community at large through its nanoHUB. nanoHUB provides the capability to perform on-line simulation through a web browser without the installation of any software. nanoHUB served over 10,800 simulation users and over 195,000 users in 2011 alone.
Gerhard’s research interest is the modeling of nanoelectronic devices, genetic algorithm based optimization, and image processing.
Gerhard is also Faculty-Part-Time Principal member at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the Applied Cluster Computing Technologies Group.
