Dr. Jeffrey Davis is an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech. He has been the recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award, the Class of 1940 W. Roane Beard Outstanding Teacher Award, HKN Richard M. Bass Outstanding Teaching Award, and the Class of 1934 Course Survey Award. He has heavily promoted STEM education throughout the state of Georgia, which resulted in him being a co-recipient of the Education Partnership Award at Georgia Tech.
Dr. Davis has also served as the faculty chair for the Electrical and Computer Engineering Student Faculty Committee for eight years, which promotes the interaction of students and faculty outside the classroom. He served for three years as a faculty advisor for the ThinkBig program here at Georgia Tech. He is currently the faculty advisor for a student led organization called Robogals that promotes female participation in engineering disciplines.
In research, Dr. Davis’ publications have been referenced over 2800 times by researchers throughout the world, and he has co-authored a book entitled Interconnect Technology and Design for Gigascale Integration, which was translated and republished in Chinese 2010. His current research interests are in exploring the low-frequency electrical properties of nanocomposite materials, and in 2012-2013 he was awarded the Georgia Tech Fund for Innovation in Research and Education (GT-FIRE) to pursue this avenue of research. Dr. Davis is currently involved in simulation and fabrication of solid-state nanocomposite materials that have extremely high-energy density for electrical energy storage.
