Dr. Chakrabarti's current research is aimed at the development of low power artificial synapses for neuromorphic circuits.
Bhaswar Chakrabarti received his B. Tech in Radiophysics and Electronics from University of Calcutta, Kolkata, India, in 2005 and M. Tech in Nanoscience and Technology from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India, in 2007. He obtained his Ph.D. in Materials Science & Engineering department from the University of Texas at Dallas, Richardson in 2013. His doctoral research primarily focused on the development of low power forming-free resistive switching memory devices using high-k dielectrics and novel 2 dimensional electrode materials.
Bhaswar has previously worked as a post-doctoral scholar (2014-2016) at the University of California, Santa Barbara where he was involved in the development of 3D CMOS-memristor hybrid circuits for novel computing applications. He joined Prof. Guha’s group at UChicago in January, 2017.
