Dr. James Morris started as a Fulbright Fellowship in the Department of Electronics
Dr. James Morris started as a Nokia-Fulbright Fellowship in the Department of Electronics on 5 April 2009. He will be lecturing and conducting research on "Nanotechnology Applications in Electrically Conductive Adhesives for Electronics Packaging". The fellowship is for six months.
Dr. James Morris is a professor of electrical & computer engineering at Portland State University, Oregon, professor emeritus at the state university of New York at Binghamton, and an IEEE Fellow. His B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees are from the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering is from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. His research activities have been focused recently on electrically conductive adhesives and the electrical conduction mechanisms in discontinuous thin metal films, with applications to nanopackaging and single-electron transistor nanoelectronics.
The Fulbright Center specialises in cultural exchange between Finland and North America. The Fulbright Center awards grants to over 70 Finnish and American students, academics, and professionals annually.
