About Neal G. Anderson

My research focuses on the physical dimensions of information and computation and their implications for future information technologies.  I am primarily interested in the following topics and their intersections:

  • fundamental physical understanding of information and computation
  • physical-information-theoretic description of computation
  • energy efficiency of computation: opportunities and physical limits 
  • post-CMOS nanocomputing and other unconventional and natural computing paradigms


Present Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Massachusetts Amherst
