Associate Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering, College of Engineering and ComputingWhen Alok Berry earned his MS in physics in 1969, the evolution of circuitry computing was picking up speed as it moved beyond individual chips to more complex microprocessors. To this day, key areas of interest for Berry are semiconductors and new electronic materials. Berry engages this knowledge with students in courses covering electromagnetic theory, linear electronics, and circuit analysis. He has been a teaching fellow and research assistant at the University of Missouri, and a lecturer in Physics at the University of Delhi.
