Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UC Davis

Srabanti Chowdhury is an associate professor of Electrical Engineering (EE) and a Senior Fellow of Precourt Institute at Stanford. She leads the Widebandgap Lab at Stanford where her research focuses on the wideband gap (WBG) and ultra-wide bandgap (UWBG) materials and device engineering for energy-efficient and compact system architecture for electronics including power RF and computation applications. Besides Gallium Nitride, her group is exploring Diamond for various active and passive electronic applications, particularly thermal management.

Srabanti received her M.S and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara working on Vertical GaN Switches. Srabanti received the DARPA Young Faculty Award, NSF CAREER, and AFOSR Young Investigator Program (YIP) in 2015. In 2016 she received the Young Scientist award at the International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors (ISCS). She is a senior member of IEEE and an alumni of NAE Frontiers of Engineering. She received the Alfred P. Sloan fellowship in Physics in 2020. To date, her work has produced over 6 book chapters, 90 journal papers, 110 conference presentations, and 26 issued patents. She serves the program committee of several IEEE conferences including IRPS and VLSI Symposium, and the executive committee of IEDM. She serves as the Associate Editor of Transaction Electron Devices as well as two committees under IEEE Electron Device Society (Compound Semiconductor Devices & Circuits Committee Members and Power Devices and ICs Committee). She is the Science Collaboration Director of the US Department of Energy Funded Energy Frontier Research Center, called ULTRA
