Arriving January 2023
Tania Roy will join Duke in January 2023 as an Assistant Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering.
Roy's work focuses on applying emerging neuromorphic computer hardware technologies to machine learning applications. By modeling computer architecture after the basic structure of synapses and neurons, hardware can be manufactured to be better adapted to pattern recognition algorithms. She also focuses on high-energy electronics made with gallium nitride, a semiconductor that is poised to replace silicon in certain areas of computer hardware. Because of its physical characteristics, the material is well suited for high-energy and high-radiation applications, such as those found outside of Earth’s atmosphere.
