Dr Gergel-Hackett’s research is focused on the design, fabrication, and physics of novel materials and devices with advantages in scaling and energy for future low-power high-performance electronics. One example of a research project that she is working on includes studying and modeling a novel nanoelectronic device known as the memristor. This new device exhibits electrical characteristics with exciting new applications and is an excellent technology to be studied by undergraduate students.
