Dr. Golareh Jalilvand is a Research Assistant Professor of the Chemical Engineering department at the University of South Carolina (UofSC). She received her B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering prior joining the UofSC as a research faculty. During the course of her Ph.D., She was the graduate research assistant in the Microelectronics Fabrication and Reliability lab at the University of Central Florida, where she worked on through-silicon and -glass via (TSV & TGV)-based 3D integration, thermo-mechanical reliability of solder joints, and novel materials for interconnection, heterogeneous integration and packaging in micro/nano-electronics.

Dr. Jalilvand’s contributions to the field of thin films for 3D integrated microelectronics has been recognized in several national and international platforms. Prior to her research on microelectronics, she focused on thin films for solid oxide fuel cells and energy conversion for a green paradigm, where she studied new interconnect materials.

Research Overview

Dr. Jalilvand’s research interests include microstructure-property relationships in interconnects for 3D integrated circuits (3D ICs). Assisted by machine learning methods developed through a collaboration with the department of Computer Science and Engineering of UofSC, she is currently working on microstructure optimization via unique electroplating techniques to enhance the reliability of 3D IC interconnects.

Furthermore, Dr. Jalilvand is employing her knowledge in microelectronics along with her experience in electrochemistry to develop novel materials for second generation batteries, as well as flexible and wearable energy conversion and storage cells.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
