You are invited to attend a seminar by Sr. Engineering Director from Seagate Research, Dr. Stephanie Hernandez. Lunch will be provided.

The Center for Advanced Semiconductor Chips with Accelerated Performance (ASAP) is working to strengthen U.S. leadership in critical technologies — including high-performance computing, advanced manufacturing, 5G and beyond — by creating new materials and process paradigms for efficient electrical interconnects, photonic integration, and in-memory computing solutions targeting digital, analog, and RF platforms.

Speaker Bio

Stephanie obtained her Ph. D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota in 2010. Hergraduate research involved modeling magnetic recording media and spin‐torque based structures. After graduate school, she started working for Recording Head Operations at Seagate Technology in Bloomington, Minnesota, as a read transducer designer. In 2015, she joined Seagate Research in Shakopee, Minnesota, to model advanced Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording. Now, she is the Sr. Director of the Data Storage and Memory Devices group at Seagate Research. This team is responsible for conducting research on advanced hard drive and other storage and memory technologies through experimentation and physics-based simulation.


Seagate Research leverages Seagate’s many technical strengths to address the growing challenges of the rapidly expanding datasphere. DNA data storage, data sanitization, edge compute and storage will behighlighted. Much of the presentation will focus on Seagate’s recently announced Mozaic™ technology. This commercialization of heat assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) as the foundation for Mozaic™ holds the promise of reducing cost, power, and space to store the world’s data.
