Tony Low


Tony Low is an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Minnesota. Prior to this, Low worked as an in-house theorist in various experimental groups at Columbia University, Yale University and IBM Thomas J. Watson Research. While at IBM, from 2011-2014, Low served as an industry liaison to various Universities under the Nanoelectronics Research Initiative with the goal of finding the next electronics switch. Low's interests lie in the theory and modeling of nano-materials and nano-devices. Low received a number of awards including the IBM Pat Goldberg Memorial Best Paper, IBM Invention Award, Singapore Millennium Fellowship, and the IEEE Electron Device Society Fellowship.
