Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering

Strukov Research Group


Dmitri’s research broadly concerns different aspects of computation, in particular addressing questions on how to efficiently perform computation on various levels of abstraction. The research spans across different disciplines including material science, device physics, circuit design, high level computer architecture, and algorithms with the emphasis on the emerging device technologies. Over the past decade, his major focus was on neuromorphic computing and, more recently, on hardware security implementations with resistive switching devices (“memristors”) and floating gate memories.


Dmitri Strukov is a professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Prior to joining UCSB Dmitri worked as a postdoctoral associate, first at Stony Brook University (Aug. 2006 – Dec. 2007), and then at Hewlett Packard Laboratories (Jan. 2007 – Jun. 2009) on various aspects of nanoelectronic devices and systems. He received a MS in applied physics and mathematics from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 1999 and a PhD in electrical engineering from Stony Brook University in New York in 2006. He is a member of ACM and IEEE societies.
