“There are a lot of great things about being an engineering professor at UMD. Two things especially stand out. One is that it’s a wonderful privilege to work with so many talented young people, see them learn and then come up with their own great ideas. Another special thing about engineers is that we take theory and put it into practice. Converting mathematics and detailed science into real products for the public good is at the heart of engineering!”
Dr. Goldsman’s recent nanofabrication and devices work has included Numerical Boltzmann/Schrodinger Equations: CAD of Quantum Effects in Nanoscale Semiconductors; and Design and Theory of Carbon Nanotube Diodes. He also recently worked on a MIPS contract with TRX Systems, Inc., of Lanham, Md., on indoor location and emergency alerting. He designed and developed technology to wirelessly track the location of firefighters, police and other public personnel inside buildings and structures. Other recent work includes energy-driven partitioning of signal processing algorithms in sensor networks; and MEMS-based piezoelectric microphones for biomedical applications.
Nanofabrication, device physics, device modeling, microelectronic device reliability and electron transport in high-electric fields. He has developed indoor location and emergency alerting, energy-driven partitioning of signal processing algorithms in sensor networks and a highly efficient thin-film battery.
