Koushik Ramadoss
Senior Research Associate

Koushik ia a Senior Research Associate with the School of ECE at Purdue University. He received his PhD degree in Condensed Matter Physics from Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, India in 2014 studying electrical noise phenomenon in 2D devices and thin films. Subsequently, Koushik was a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard and Purdue exploring oxide-based semiconductors and demonstrating their application in non-volatile memory. Prior to his PhD, Koushik worked as a RF Engineer with Indian Space Research Organization, Bengaluru, India.
His current research is focused on fabrication and characterization of SiC based devices particularly studying the interfacial properties of the semiconductor / gate dielectric using electrical and material-based techniques.

Research: Fabrication and characterization of SiC devices

Swati Shikha
PhD Graduate Student

Swati obtained her bachelor's degree in electrical and electronics engineering from BITS Pilani, Goa, India, in 2018. She then joined the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, and was positioned at the characterization end of the technology development team for building reliable, high-power Gallium Nitride-based devices. She joined the Master's program at Purdue in August 2019. Soon after, she started working in the Silicon Carbide group at Birck. Her current work focuses on the development of vertical tri-gate power mosfets in 4H-SiC.

Research: Tri-gate

Rajni Kumari Sah
PhD Graduate Student

Rajni is pursuing her PhD in Electrical Engineering at Purdue University. In 2018, she completed her B.E. in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bangalore, India. She worked as ASIC Engineer at Juniper Networks for a year before joining Purdue in Fall 2019 and later completed her MS in ELectrical Engineering from Purdue University. Currently, her research includes fabrication and characterization of highly scaled, fully self-aligned 4H-SiC trench MOSFETs (IMOSFET Gen -2). She is also working on improving channel mobility, threshold instability and robustness of 650V SiC power MOSFETs with different gate oxide deposition methods.

Thomas Gonzaga
PhD Graduate Student

Thomas attained his bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, in 2023. Throughout his undergraduate years, he has done research on metal halide perovskites for photovoltaic applications and, more recently, on high-performance Gallium Nitride vertical transistors. In the summer of 2022, he joined the Purdue WBG group where he performed 2-D numerical simulations on a SiC IMOSFET aiming to optimize its performance. He is currently pursuing a direct PhD at Purdue University focusing his studies on SiC power devices.

Research:SiC power device, Simulation

Julie Timperman
MS Graduate Student

Julie is a MS student in ECE at Purdue University. Julie joined the Purdue after graduating from Hope College with a bachelor’s in computer engineering in 2023. She is currently working towards her master’s in electrical and computer engineering. Her research primarily focuses on improving electron mobility on trench SiC power mosfets and devices characterization.
