Mark Pavicic, Ph.D.

Senior Research Scientist

Dr. Mark Pavicic received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and a B.S. in Physics and Mathematics, awarded concurrently, in 1974 from Iowa State University. He then earned an M.S. in Electrical Engineering in 1976 from the University of Illinois, and in 1985 received a M.Ph. and Ph.D. in the same field from Columbia University.

Before coming to the Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE), Pavicic started his career at Texas Instruments and moved on to hold positions at IBM, North Dakota State University (NDSU), Great Plains Software, and Dakota Technologies. During his years at Texas Instruments and IBM, he was a key contributor to one of “The 25 Microchips That Shook the World” (IEEE Spectrum 2009) and received three U.S. patents for his work on processors and computer displays. He later received three more patents from his work on high-speed digitizers at Dakota Technologies. While at NDSU, Pavicic became an Associate Professor in the Computer Science and Electrical & Computer Engineering departments and taught a broad range of subjects.

Pavicic joined CNSE as a Senior Research Scientist in 2006. He was recently the NDSU PI for the Conformal Computing Program, a DoD-sponsored collaboration between NDSU and MIT to investigate a new computational paradigm. He is currently leading related projects on flexible sensor arrays and cellular computing.
