Michael Deal is a Senior Research Scientist at Stanford University, where he has worked for the past 30 years . In addition to directing graduate students in their Ph.D. research in Prof. Yoshio Nishi’s group in the EE Department, he works for the Stanford Nanofabrication Facility (SNF). There he is Director of Education and Outreach, leads the equipment training film production, and is a technical liaison  for the lab.  In his education and outreach work, he directs the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) summer program,  coordinates SNF outreach activities including giving tours and presentations to school classes (including via webcams to remote locations), and has been part of the McREL NanoLeap and NanoTeach programs on nanotechnology curriculum and professional development for high schools.   He also has occasional teaching duties in the departments of EE and MS&E.  Previously Mike developed the SUPREM 3.5 and SUPREM-IV.GS process simulators for GaAs technology. Current research interests include nanoelectronics and the chemistry and materials aspects of nanodevice fabrication, including advanced transistors.

Mike received the A.B. degree in chemistry from Occidental College in Los Angeles, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Science and Engineering from Stanford University. After graduation, he worked as a Senior Staff Scientist in R&D at American Microsystems, Inc. in Santa Clara, CA, developing silicide and aluminum metallizations for CMOS technology, before returning to Stanford. Along with Prof. James Plummer (former Dean of Engineering, Stanford University) and Dr. Peter Griffin, Dr. Deal co-authored the textbook "Silicon VLSI Technology - Fundamentals, Practice and Modeling" published by Prentice Hall.
