Mr. Lior Rodes is a Ph.D. Candidate at the Laboratories of Architectures Systems Intelligent Computing & Integrated Circuits (ASIC2) and Electron Device Physics & Energy in Electronics (EDPEE), the Andrew and Erna Viterbi Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.
Mr. Rodes received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, in 2005 and 2011, respectively, both in Mechanical Engineering.
Mr. Rodes is currently a Distinguished Professional Fellow in a leading defense company. In this role, he leads the thermal management technology for microelectronic components and systems as well as the research efforts on thermo-electrical technology for cybersecurity based physical unclonable function (PUF) chips.
Before that, Mr. Rodes directed the Advanced Miniaturization Technologies Department for six years. In this position, he led the infrastructure research on heat dissipation from chips, high-level chip-scale packaging, and high-volume assembly processes for the Ministry of Defense and managed thermal and reliability designs for RF chips and modules. He also supervised the Characterization and Analysis Laboratory and the Wet Process Development Laboratory.
His current research interests include cybersecurity, thermo-electrical coating, physical unclonable function (PUF), and thermal management for microelectronic and high-power devices.
