Meet Prashant Aji, our Senior Director of Program Management for New Products. Prashant holds his Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering with a specialization in Semiconductor Manufacturing from the University of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Originally from Pune, India, Prashant moved around to many places including Cincinnati, San Jose, Singapore, France and finally, San Diego.
“I moved to San Diego last year – Cymer brought me here but the people and weather have kept me in California.”
Prior to Cymer, Prashant worked at KLA-Tencor, another semiconductor equipment company as the Head of Marketing for New Growth Markets.
“I am always drawn toward technology companies and Cymer DNA in technology innovation interested me. In addition, a role in shaping new product development was very attractive to me.”
“My favorite part about Cymer is the people. I love seeing Bob and Rick, the original founders, still so keenly involved as mentors in technology development at Cymer. If you love innovation and solving tough, unique problems while working in a fun environment, Cymer is your place.”
Outside of work, Prashant is a runner and field hockey player. “If you need a goal keeper I am your man. They call me the custodian.”
Fun fact about Prashant?
“All of my family members were born in different countries – and all outside the United States.”
