Costas Spanos received the Electrical Engineering Diploma with honors from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, 1980, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University , 1981 and 1985 respectively. From 1985 to 1988 he was with the advanced CAD development group of Digital Equipment Corporation in Hudson MA.
In 1988 he joined the faculty at the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences of the UC Berkeley, where he is now a Professor, and the Associate Dean for Research for the College of Engineering. He has served in the technical committees of the IEEE Symposium on VLSI Technology, the International Semiconductor Manufacturing Sciences Symposium, the Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Symposium and the International Workshop on Statistical Metrology. He was the editor of the IEEE Transactions on Semiconductor Manufacturing from 1991 to 1994 and Director of the Berkeley Microfabrication Laboratory from 1996 to 2000.
Dr. Spanos has published more than 150 referred publications, has received best paper awards in 1992, 1997, 2001 and 2005 and he is a fellow of the IEEE. His research interests include the development of flexible manufacturing systems, the application of statistical analysis in the design and fabrication of integrated circuits, and the development and deployment of novel sensors and computer-aided techniques in semiconductor manufacturing.
