About

Wolfgang Windl is a Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University and works in the area of Computational Materials Science. Before joining OSU in 2001, he spent four years with Motorola, ending his tenure as Principal Staff Scientist in the Digital DNA Laboratories in Austin, TX, where he was working in the area of multiscale modeling of semiconductor processing. Previously, he held postdoctoral positions at Los Alamos National Laboratory with Art Voter and Arizona State University with Otto Sankey. He received his diploma and doctoral degree in physics from the University Regensburg, advised by Dieter Strauch. Among others, he received the first Fraunhofer-Bessel Research Award from the Humboldt Society in 2006; a 2004 Nanotechnology Industrial Impact Award from the Nano Science and Technology Institute; two Patent and Licensing Awards from Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1998 and 1999; three Lumley Research Awards from the College of Engineering at The Ohio State University; and the 2006 Mars Fontana Best Teacher Award of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Ohio State University.
