He served as distinguished lecturer for the IEEE Signal processing society in 2004.
Michael Goryll joined the ASU faculty in 2007. He received a Ph.D. in physics in 2000 and a diploma in physics in 1997, both from the RWTH Aachen University, Germany. He performed his post-doctoral research on biosensors at ASU during the years 2003-2005. Before joining ASU as a faculty member, Goryll spent several years at the Research Centre Jülich, the largest national research lab in Germany, focusing on SiGe chemical vapor deposition and biosensor development. Dr. Goryll's current research interests are in the field of silicon processing for nanopore devices, the integration of biogenic nanostructures with silicon MEMS and the development of low-noise wide-bandwidth electronics for the recording of ionic currents in the pA range. Dr. Goryll is a recipient of the NSF CAREER award in 2012 as well as numerous teaching awards, including the 2012 Fulton Schools of Engineering Best Teacher Award.
“I received my B.S degree in Electronics and Communications from the National Institute of Engineering, India in 2011. I am currently pursuing my Master’s and PhD program in Electrical Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU). I am advised by Dr. Andreas Spanias. I joined the Sensor, Signal and Information Processing Center (SenSIP) at ASU in Jan 2016.
My research interests lie at the overlap of sensors and Machine learning and Big Data including, but not limited to Pattern recognition and Anomaly detection. In summer 2016, I did a summer internship at NXP Semiconductors where I worked on sensor data analytics for anomaly detection. I worked on integrating machine learning algorithms on an embedded sensor systems for Internet of Things applications, which can identify anomalies in real time. Before joining ASU, I worked as Systems engineer for 4 years at Hewlett Packard Research and Development, Bangalore, India.”
Dr. Erica Forzani is Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering Program as well as joint faculty in the Mechanical Engineering Graduate Program in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport, and Energy at Arizona State University (SEMTE).

She received her Ph.D. in Chemistry and B.S. in Clinical Chemistry at Cordoba National University in Argentina. Prior to join ASU, she received prestigious fellowships from the Argentinian Research Council to support her Ph.D. and postdoctoral studies in Argentina. She came to ASU in 2003 as postdoctoral research associate of the Department of Electrical Engineering; where later she worked as Assistant Research Professor. Dr. Forzani became Assistant Professor in SEMTE in Fall 2010. Erica is also Research Associate of Mayo Clinic.
Dr. Forzani’s current research interests are the development of novel hybrid chemical and biosensors and the integration of sensors into wireless, non-invasive and inexpensive sensor devices. She is focused on health applications, and environmental health and safety. Currently, she has over 70 peer-reviewed publications, three patents, 11 patent applications and 4 transferred intellectual properties. In addition, she has served as Guest Editor of Nanotechnology Journal, and is member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Biosensors and Bioelectronics.
