Dr. Scott Sills

Scott Sills is a Senior Member of the Technical Staff in the Emerging Memory Group at Micron Technology, Inc. He began working on emerging memories in 2002 with IBM’s Millipede Storage Project, then joined Micron in 2006.  He has led several efforts that brought new devices and new processing techniques from the lab-to-fab, including resistive random access memory devices, along with bottom-up processes involving directed molecular self-assembly.  Scott’s R&D focus encompasses nanoscale devices and mesoscopic material systems, processing and assembling materials at the nanoscale, and elucidating the roles of finite-size effects as they pertain to material scaling and the performance of integrated devices.

Scott received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Washington in 2004, and his Bachelors in Chemical Engineering from the University of Delaware in 1995. He has authored three book chapters, over twenty journal articles, and over one hundred U.S. patents. He is a member of the technical committee for the IEEE Nonvolatile Memory Technology Symposium and adjunct faculty for the Materials Science and Engineering Department at Boise State University.
