Eugene Chow



Job: scientist
Eugene Chow is a strategy leader and principal scientist in the Hardware Research and Technology Laboratory at PARC.  He focuses on synchronizing research and commercialization strategies with asset generating external funding, and is particularly interested in innovation culture and business models to support disruptive R&D.  He previously managed the microsystems area at PARC and has supported our Ventures and CleanTech business. He initiated and lead PARC’s externally supported microjet drug delivery program, funding PARC’s first animal studies aimed at helping pandemic response with nucleic acids.  This was part his larger drive to develop advanced instrumentation for biomedicine and the pharmaceutical industry.  He lead an early stage novel printing project which others grew to a full scale system capable of printing previously unprintable materials at state of the art speed and resolution.  He lead a devices for healthcare services project for several years scouting strategic new corporate directions. His main focus has been inventing and develop new integration technologies for microelectronics, based on microassembly and microsprings.   The microassembly work is a fundamentally new manufacturing process where software precisely controls micro-objects in solution,  to enable a new microassembler printer tool for advanced electronics, display and microstructured materials.   The microsprings are high density interconnects designed to solve test, integration and scaling challenges for the semiconductor packaging industry. Eugene has initiated and secured many government programs and external commercial contracts, including significant work with Asia, serving as principal investigator for ~18 different customers and ~$20M of externally funded research, while being focused on developing intellectual property assets for PARC.  He earned his Ph.D. and M.S. in electrical engineering from Stanford University, along with an M.S. in management science and engineering. He received his B.S. in engineering physics from the University of California, Berkeley. He has over 60 publications, 100 patents, and 30 invited talks.  He has had the privilege to collaborate with outstanding colleagues at PARC for over 20 years.
