Anisha Ramesh
Anisha Ramesh, a fifth-year PhD student in electrical and computer engineering, was awarded a 2011 SBC Presidential Fellowship, the most competitive and prestigious scholarly recognition provided by The Ohio State University Graduate School.

The SBC Presidential Fellowship recognizes outstanding scholarship and research ability and provides recipients with the opportunity to devote themselves to their dissertation research full time.

As part of Prof. Paul Berger’s research group, Ramesh is working on alternate devices and circuit topologies that could replace the current CMOS technology and push the performance of integrated circuits further in terms of higher speeds and much lower power consumption to keep mobile devices running without requiring frequent charging. In particular, Prof. Berger’s group works on devices that utilize quantum mechanical tunneling. Her work has resulted in a US patent disclosure. She has also co-authored a book chapter with Prof. Berger entitled Negative Differential Resistance Devices and Circuits.

Anisha Ramesh is also actively involved in the newly-formed IEEE Graduate Student Body and is currently the secretary. Ramesh received a master’s in microelectronics from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India. She previously received an Ohio State University Fellowship for 2006-2007.
