Ioannis Savidis is an Assistant Professor at Drexel University, where he is Director of the Integrated Circuits and Electronics (ICE) Design and Analysis Laboratory. He received the B.S.E. degree in electrical and computer engineering and biomedical engineering from Duke University, Durham, NC, in 2005. He received both the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY under the guidance of Professor Eby G. Friedman. As part of his doctoral work, he developed circuit design techniques and methodologies for proper synchronization and power delivery of heterogeneous three-dimensional integrated circuits.
He interned at Freescale Semiconductor Corporation, Austin, TX, during the summers of 2006 and 2007, where he worked on the electrical characterization and modeling of interplane 3-D vias. During the summers of 2008, 2009, and 2010 he interned at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY, where he worked on electrical characterization and modeling, reticle design, and DC and high frequency electrical measurements of test vehicles implementing various interplane 3-D via topologies.
Ioannis is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Circuits, Systems, and Computers.
