Lloyd R. Harriott, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education

Lloyd Harriott is the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education in the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Virginia Microelectronics Consortium Professor in The Charles L. Brown Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Virginia. He received the PhD degree in Physics from the State University of New York at Binghamton in 1980 and joined Bell Laboratories that same year. At Bell Laboratories he was Director of Advanced Lithography Research in the Physical Sciences Research Division. He joined the ECE department at University of Virginia in 2001 and was appointed Department Chair in 2003 and served until 2012 in that capacity. He also served as the Associate Chair for Undergraduate Programs in the ECE department. His research interests include nanofabrication, nanoelectronic devices and Engineering Education.
