Tim Anderson

Dr. Gambino received the B.S. degree in materials science from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 1979, and the PhD degree in materials science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, in 1984.

He joined IBM, Hopewell Junction, NY, in 1984, where he worked on silicide processes for Bipolar and CMOS devices. In 1992, he joined the DRAM development alliance at IBM's Advanced Semiconductor Technology Center, Hopewell Junction, NY. While there, he developed contact and interconnect processes for 0.25-, 0.175-, and 0.15-um DRAM products. In 1999, he joined IBM's manufacturing organization in Essex Junction, VT, where he has worked on copper interconnect processes for CMOS logic technology.

Since 2015 Dr. Gambino holds a postion as Senior Process Integration Engineer at ON Semiconductor in Oregon, USA. He has published over 90 technical papers and holds over 100 patents.

Dr. Gambino has been a member of the Continuing Education Institute-Europe faculty since 2007.

Dr Anderson's research includes the study of advanced electronic and photonic materials processing issues. In particular, his group has an active program in the growth of group III nitrides for visible light emitting device applications. Other ongoing research programs range from flow visualization in bulk crystal growth to using organometallic precursors to grow thin films.

More recently his group has been using novel single source precursors to grow barrier materials for Cu metallization, exploring deposition of low work function materials for high brightness electron emitters, in addition to developing alternative processes to grow CuInSe2 absorber layers for thin film photovoltaic applications.

Dr Anderson is editor of the Chemical Engineering Education journal and associate editor of the J. Phase Equilibria.

Dr Anderson were recipient of the Lacey Lectureship at the California Institute of Technology, the C.M.A. Stine Award in Materials, the Union Carbide Lectureship Award, the Tau Beta Pi, Excellence in Undergraduate Education Award, the D.O.E. Research Partnership Award, and a Fullbright Research Scholar Award.

Dr Anderson has been a member of the Continuing Education Institute-Europe Faculty since 1985.
