Sriram has over 20 years of experience in leading teams and developing scalable processes in electronic materials, device fabrication and packaging technologies, and high-volume manufacturing methods. He is an inventor on 17 granted patents, several patent applications pending, and has authored and co-authored over 50 peer-reviewed publications to date. He also has an Adjunct Associate Professor position at the University of Texas at Dallas in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering doing research and development of ultrasensitive sensors for various applications, including biosensing and environmental use cases.
Sriram received his Bachelor of Technology (BTech) degree from the Indian Institute of Technology in India in Metallurgical Engineering in 1997. He went on to complete his PhD in Ceramics and Materials Engineering from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey in 2003, where his doctoral research focused on thin film growth and characterization of II-VI materials for optimizing electrical and optical device performance.
After his PhD, Sriram was scouted by Intel, where he was a lead on research and development programs, especially those challenging the status-quo, i.e. disruptive technologies translation from research to development and manufacturing. A significant number of these programs involved transfer of technology from university and research stage to delivering product and technology readiness for high-volume manufacturing. He was recognized for his contributions within the company with several awards and was instrumental in several trade secrets and patent filings. He also held positions at Maxim Integrated Products and Qorvo Inc., where he was instrumental in bringing new Sensor technologies to market.
