Ananth Dodabalapur

Motorola Regents Chair Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering

The University of Texas at Austin

Ananth Dodabalapur received his Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in 1990. Between 1990 and 2001 he was with Bell Laboratories, NJ. Since 1992 he has investigated various aspects of the physics and technology of organic and polymer semiconductor devices.  He has published more than 200 articles in refereed journals which have resulted in a H Index of approximately 90 (Google Scholar), and has 27 issued US patents. He is a co-recipient of the 2002 National award for team innovation of the American Chemical Society.  Since September 2001, he is with The University of Texas at Austin and holds the Motorola Regents Chair in Engineering. His present research includes organic and inorganic thin-film transistors and optoelectronic devices, 2D materials device physics and device chemistry, and flexible thin-film electronics.  In 2003, he co-founded OrganicID, a company that created printable polymer electronics technologies to fabricate low-cost RFID tags for the 13.56 MHz frequency.  He was the founding Editor-in-Chief of Flexible and Printed Electronics.
