Sanjay Krishna is the new George R. Smith Chair in Engineering and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (beginning January 2017).

Krishna is a world leading researcher and innovator in the field of narrow bandgap semiconductors applied to infrared imaging sensors and related technologies. His research focus on antimony-based compound semiconductors will provide a new thrust in our highly regarded semiconductor epitaxy and device development cluster that dovetails with an M&MS goal to create information technologies with vastly lower power consumption. His innovation activities include his co-founding role of SK Infrared, LLC, a company developing portable infrared imaging systems for defense and commercial applications in areas such as early detection of skin cancer. This industry experience is an outstanding fit for the nascent Materials Innovation Greenhouse as we continue to build out OSU’s innovation ecosystem via the M&MS Discovery Theme. Krishna was most recently the Microelectronics Endowed Chair and Regents Professor at the University of New Mexico where he was also the Director of the Center for High Technology Materials. Krishna is a Fellow of IEEE, OSA and SPIE, and is the recipient of the NCMR-DIA Chief Scientist Award for Excellence.
