Roger K. Lake received his B.S.E.E. (1986), M.S.E.E. (1988), and Ph.D. (1992) degrees from Purdue University. In 1993, he joined the Nanoelectronics Branch of Central Research Labs, Texas Instruments, Dallas to develop the theory for the Nanotechnology Engineering Program which became known as NEMO. In 1997, the Nanoelectronics Branch was acquired by Raytheon, where, as Sr. Physics Engineer, he developed theory and designs for Si/SiGe MBE grown tunnel diodes. In 2000, he joined the Electrical Engineering Department, University of California Riverside as an Associate Professor and founded the Laboratory for Terahertz and Terascale Electronics (LATTE) for investigating future electronic materials and devices. He was promoted to Professor in 2006, and he served as Department Chair from 2006-2011. He is a cooperating faculty member of the Computer Science and Engineering Department and a faculty member of the Materials Science and Engineering Program. He served as an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology from 2006 – 2012. He is currently an editor for IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices and a member of the International Editorial Board of the Journal of Nanoelectronics and Optoelectronics. He received the Semiconductor Research Corporation Fellowship and Semiconductor Research Corporation Inventor Recognition Awards.
