Professor Zaslavsky conducts research on devices that could supplement the current silicon transistor-based microelectronics technology. This includes:
- devices based on non-classical operating principles, such as quantum mechanical tunneling
- devices based on alternative materials, such as germanium-on-insulator and carbon nanotubes
- probabilistic error-tolerant silicon device architectures
- flexible electronics, such as curved or stretchable electronic displays

Alex Zaslavsky received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Princeton University in 1991, working under Daniel C. Tsui. From 1991 to 1993 he was a postdoctoral scientist at IBM Research, Yorktown Heights. In 1994 he became an Assistant Professor of Engineering at Brown University, where he was promoted to Associate Professor in 2000, and to Full Professor of Engineering and Physics in 2007. He is a recipient of a Sloan Fellowship, an Office of Naval Research Young Investigator award, and a National Science Foundation Career award. In 2000-1 and again in 2007 he spent sabbatical periods at LETI-CEA/Minatec, Grenoble, France, working on silicon-on-insulator technology. He has also worked at CNRS laboratories in Marseille and Grenoble and has an on-going collaboration with IBM Research Yorktown. He has authored over 80 journal articles and book chapters, and co-edited six books in the microelectronics field. Since 2003 he has been an editor of the Solid State Electronics international journal.
