Biography

Dragica Vasileska (F’2019) received the B.S.E.E.  (Diploma, equivalent to M.S. Degree in USA) and the M.S.E.E. Degree from the University Sts. Cyril and Methodius (Skopje, Republic of Macedonia) in 1985 and 1991, respectively, and a Ph.D. Degree from Arizona State University in 1995.  From 1995 until 1997 she held a Faculty Research Associate position within the Center of Solid State Electronics Research at Arizona State University. In the fall of 1997 she joined the faculty of Electrical Engineering at Arizona State University. In 2002 she was promoted to Associate Professor and in 2007 to Full Professor. Her research interests include semiconductor device physics and semiconductor device modeling, with strong emphasis on quantum transport and Monte Carlo particle-based device simulations. Recently her focus also includes modeling metastability and reliability of solar cells. Prof. Vasileska has published more than 180 publications in prestigious scientific journals, over 200 conference proceedings refereed papers, 25 book chapters, has given numerous invited talks and is a co-author on three books: Computational Electronics, D. Vasileska and S. M. Goodnick, Morgan & Claypool, 2006; Computational Electronics: Semiclassical and Quantum Transport Modeling, D. Vasileska, S. M. Goodnick and G. Klimeck, CRC Press, 2010, and Modeling Self-Heating Effects in Nanoscale Devices, K. Raleva, A. Shaik, D. Vasileska and S. M. Goodnick, Institute of Physics Publishing, Morgan & Claypool, 2017. She is also an editor of two books: Cutting Edge Nanotechnology, In-Tech, 2010 and Nano-Electronic Devices: Semiclassical and Quantum Transport Modeling (Co-Editor S. M. Goodnick), Springer, July 2011. She has many awards including the best student award from the School of Electrical Engineering in Skopje since its existence (1985, 1990). She is also a recipient of the 1998 NSF CAREER Award. Her students have won the best paper and the best poster award at the LDSD conference in 2004, the best oral presentation award at the ISDRS Conference in 2011, two best poster awards at the 2014 IMAPS Symposium, two best poster awards at the 42nd PVSC Conference in 2015, best student oral presentation at the 2015 IMAPS Symposium, best poster at the 2016 IMAPS Symposium, 3rd best poster place at the 2017 NREL/SNL/BNL PV Reliability Workshop, etc.
