Welcome to AMANDA, the research lab of Prof. Massood Tabib-Azar at the University of Utah’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Our areas of study include non-volatile memory devices, microfluidics, microwave technologies for nanometrology, MEMS and NEMS, molecular electronics, and novel electronic materials (carbon nanotubes, and nano-particles) and devices.

We are looking towards the future of electronics by developing self-assembly and self-repairing circuits, non-destructive testing techniques, and new nanometrology tools for the evaluation and testing of these systems.

There are many research position openings at all levels (Post Docs, Ph.D., M.S., and Undergraduate). Please contact via e-mail Prof. Tabib-Azar (azar.m@utah.edu) if you are interested.
