Professor Themis Prodromakis
Themis is a Professor of Nanotechnology and EPSRC Fellow affiliated with the Nano Research Group and the Southampton Nanofabrication Centre of ECS at University of Southampton. He is also a Honorary Research Fellow within Imperial College London. He previously held a Corrigan Fellowship in Nanoscale Technology and Science, funded by the Corrigan Foundation and LSI Inc., within the Centre for Bio-inspired Technology at Imperial College and a Lindemann Trust Visiting Fellowship in EECS UC Berkeley. Prof Prodromakis is a Fellow of the IET, Senior Member of the IEEE, and a Member of the INE, and also serves as member of the BioCAS, Nanoelectronics and Gigascale Systems and the Sensory Systems Technical Committees of the IEEE Circuits & Systems Society. He is also a member of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council, representing the CAS society, and Associate Editor for Nature's Scientific Reports, IEEE Sensors and the Frontiers in Neuromorphic Engineering. Prof Prodromakis is also the Director of the Lloyds Register Foundation International Consortium for Nanotechnology, a global initiative for building a safer world with nanotechnologies. His contributions on electron devices were recognised by his appointment as a member of the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) Emerging Research Devices working group that produces the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS). In 2015, Prof Prodromakis established ArC Instruments Ltd, a start-up that delivers high-performance testing infrastructure for automating characterisation of novel nanodevices. His background is in Electron Devices and nanofabrication techniques, with his research being focused on bio-inspired devices for advanced computing architectures and biomedical applications.
