Biography: Harry E. Ruda received the B.Sc. degree (with distinction) from Imperial College of Science and Technology, UK in 1983, and Ph.D. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA in 1982. He was awarded an IBM Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, during which he worked on one of the first theories of electron transport in quantum nanostructures. From 1984 to 1989 he was a Senior Research Scientist working at 3M Corporation where he was a key member of their II-VI semiconductor blue laser team. In 1989, he joined the MSE department at the University of Toronto, cross appointed to ECE. In 1997 he was appointed as the Director of University of Toronto’s. Centre for Nanotechnology. He has published over 250 publications in internationally refereed journals (with >2,800 SCI citations), co-authored 4 books and has 14 patents. Professor Ruda’s research interests focus on the fabrication, modeling understanding of behaviour of quantum functional nanostructures and their applications to nanoelectronics and nanophotonics.
