Ajey Jacob, Ph.D., is Principle Member of the Technical Staff and leads the Differentiating Technology Research group for GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ TD Research division (Malta, New York). In this capacity, Dr. Jacob does research on “More Than Moore,” differentiating elements such as artificial intelligence, silicon photonics, and embedded logic and memory devices. He has also served GLOBALFOUNDRIES in various other capacities such as leading the exploratory device and integration research group (sub 14 nm technology node), and the pathfinding integration research program (10 & 7 nm node) for the IBM Technology Alliance in Albany, NY.  
Until 2011, Dr. Jacob worked as a senior research scientist for Intel Corporation’s component research organization and managed two industry-sponsored strategic research consortia for next-generation CMOS devices and materials — Western Institute of Nanoelectronics (WIN) and Functional Engineering in Nano Architectonics (FENA) — as well as many other key Intel-sponsored research projects. In addition, he has been a device engineer supporting high-volume manufacturing of the 90 nm at Intel and 28 nm technologies at GLOBALFOUNDRIES. 
Dr. Jacob received his Ph.D. in Physics from the Chalmers University of Technology/Gothenburg University (Gothenburg, Sweden) in 2002. He has more than 110 patents issued world-wide and more than 50 patents are pending approval. He has published three book chapters, and more than 70 journal and conference papers in a wide area of scaled and differentiating technologies. He received the Mahboob Khan Outstanding Industry Liaison Award from Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) in 2013 and 2016; and was conferred the GLOBALFOUNDRIES title of Master Inventor as recognition for key inventions at the company (2017-2018).
