Dr. Todd Younkin

Dr. Todd Younkin is the President & CEO of SRC, where he leads a ~$100M/yr. global research agenda supported by ~3k academic and industrial researchers, 27 international companies, and 3 U.S. government agencies (DARPA, NSF, and NIST).

Following his appointment, SRC released its 2030 Decadal Plan for Semiconductors, where it identified the five "seismic shifts" shaping the future of information and communication technologies (ICT). Working closely with SIA, SRC called for greatly increased federal investments throughout the decade to establish a smarter pipeline for semiconductor R&D, aligned to SRC's Decadal Plan. This helped to drive the passage of the Chips and Science Act of 2022 on August 9th, 2022.

Todd's excited by the worldwide call for renewed investments in semiconductor materials, manufacturing, and design, as well as the equally important calls for renewed commitment to education and workforce development and our need for environmental sustainability. Only by investing in a bright, collective future, will we rise to meet the opportunities presented by the next industrial revolution based on semiconductor technologies.

Prior to becoming SRC's CEO, Dr. Younkin worked at Intel with research and development experience that spanned Intel's 0.18um to 5nm nodes and a variety of business units. He holds a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Florida and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the California Institute of Technology.
