Dr. Hasler's current research interests include low power electronics, the use of floating-gate MOS transistors to build adaptive information processing systems, and "smart" interfaces for sensors, including chemical, acoustical, and micromachined sensors; merging digital and analog signal processing on single integrated circuits; device physics related to submicron devices or floating-gate devices; and analog VLSI models of on-chip learning and sensory processing in neurobiology. When he arrived at Georgia Tech, Dr. Hasler started the Integrated Computational Electronics (ICE) laboratory, currently a part of the Laboratories for Neural Engineering. Currently, this laboratory is composed of 18 graduate students, as well as three undergraduate students. This research program has received several awards: the Office of Naval Research (ONR) Young Investigator Award (2002), the NSF CAREER Award (2001), a Best Paper Award at SCI 2001, and a Finalist for the Packard Young Investigator Award (1999). In its short existence, the ICE lab has been the primary source of over 52 refereed conference publications, one book, numerous book chapters, 14 published or accepted journal papers, 14 patent applications, and 4 journal papers in review. In addition, under preparation are eight journal papers (based upon current submitted conference papers), as well as several patent disclosures to be submitted in the next two months. Dr. Hasler's research laboratory is currently funded through a combination of industrial funding sources and collaborative projects. His current students are supported through a mixture of funding, including three NSF research grants (one is a NSF CAREER award), one ONR grant (a Young Investigator Award), two DARPA grants, fellowships (e.g. GEM), industrial support (Texas Instruments (TI), Motorola, Second Sight, Rstream), and internal support (Yamacraw).
