Dr. Tania Paskova

| Biography

Dr Paskova is a distinguished researcher in the field of wide bandgap semiconductors, particularly in the growth of bulk nitrides. Her research contributions cover a broad spectrum of topics in optoelectronic materials and device structures, including III-V nitride semiconductors, arsenide compounds and alloys and carbide materials. She is editor and co-editor of two scientific books; author of 15 invited book chapters and reviews, and of more than 220 scientific papers in peer-review journals and conference proceedings; and is also a co-inventor of four patents. She has a strong record as a principal investigator on a number of projects granted by MDA, DARPA, AFRL. She is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Crystal Growth and a member of several referee boards.
