Jonathan Goodwill is a Graduate Student Researcher in the Alternative Computing Group in the Nanoscale Device Characterization Division. He received his B.A. in physics from Duquesne University and a B.S. in materials science engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in materials science engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. His doctoral research focuses on the characterization and optimization of threshold and memory switching devices for resistive random access memory (RRAM) with applications in novel data storage architectures and neuromorphic computing. He is currently working with Jabez McClelland to map the lateral temperature distribution in RRAM switching devices based on TaOx.
