Christof Teuscher

Dr. Teuscher develops disruptive new computing paradigms and machines that will allow for lasting breakthroughs and open new application domains in the next 5-20 years. This quest is motivated by the fact that as feature-size scaling and “Moore’s Law” in CMOS circuits further slow down, attention is shifting to computing by non-von Neumann, non-CMOS, and non-Boolean computing models. Teuscher’s research group uses radical interdisciplinary approach and applies tools from computer science, computer engineering, physics, biology, complex systems science, and cognitive science to the study and the design of next generation computing models and architectures. Teuscher has also published multiple books and over 100 scientific publications.
