About Me

20181219_110511Hi! My name is Rinus and I am an engineer in the semiconductor industry. I focus on device and process technology development for manufacturing nanometer-scale devices. I enjoy pushing the boundaries of materials science and electrical engineering, turning science into applications.

I received my technical training from National University of Singapore and joined the industry after my PhD in 2009. Over the past decade, I have worked on novel semiconductor materials, exploratory transistor designs and manufacturing technology. I have contributed to 103 journal and conference publications with 9 invited talks and 23 patents.

My contributions to the field have been recognized with various awards and honors such as the 2017, 2020 GF Invention Achievement Levels, 2009 IEEE/EDS PhD Fellowship, 2009 European MRS Young Scientist Award, 2008 TSMC Internship Program (1st Prize), 2007 TSMC Outstanding Student Research (Gold) and 2006 Marubun Research Promotion Foundation Travel Grant.

Being a member of IEEE, I have served as the chair of the EDS chapter in Schenectady from 2016 – 2018. For our contributions to the local technical community, we received the 2017 IEEE EDS Chapter of the Year Award. Currently, I am volunteering as a regional editor on the EDS newsletter committee. I have also served on organizing committees for MRS Spring Meetings 2017, 2019 and IEDM 2020.
