Manjul Bhushan is the sole proprietor of OctEval, a technical consulting company in the field of silicon and superconducting technologies. She received her Ph.D. in physics from Clemson University in 1978, and subsequently acquired over 33 years of experience in basic and applied research, development, and manufacturing. From 1979 to 1997 she worked in the areas of compound semiconductor thin-film photovoltaic cells (Institute of Energy Conversion at the University of Delaware), and fabrication technology for superconducting devices used in magnetic, microwave and digital circuit applications (Unisys, MIT Lincoln Laboratory and SUNY at Stony Brook).

From 1997 to 2012, working for IBM, she initially focused on compact model evaluation and CMOS circuit performance characterization in bulk silicon and SOI technologies. Special emphasis was placed on the design and utilization of DC and high-speed test structures placed in scribe-lines or embedded in IBM product chips. Most recently she worked on circuit design tool evaluation, and on test and characterization of microprocessor chips at wafer, module and system levels for IBM's high-end servers.

Dr. Bhushan is a Senior Member of the IEEE, has over 80 publications, and has 29 issued or pending patents. She is co-author of Microelectronic Test Structures for CMOS Technology and CMOS Test and Evaluation: A Physical Perspective, published by Springer in 2011 and 2014 respectively.
