Michele St Louis-Weber, Ph.D.
As a factory manager at Intel Corporation, Michele St Louis-Weber oversees the world’s cutting edge premier 22nm process technology at the Ocotillo facility in Chandler, Arizona. This is one of the most complex manufacturing processes in the world. Just imagine making a transistor so small that six million could fit in the period at the end of this sentence.
For decades, Intel Corporation developed technology, enabling the computer and internet revolution that has changed the world. Founded in 1968 to build semiconductor memory products, Intel introduced the first microprocessor in 1971. Today, Intel is the world’s largest chip maker and is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products.
Michele acquired her Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University. Her undergraduate degree was a Bachelor of Science in Physics from Missouri State University. Immediately following her graduate studies, Michele joined Intel in New Mexico as a process engineer. Since then, Michele co-developed several process technologies in both 200mm and 300mm wafer facilities at five of Intel’s wafer manufacturing sites (New Mexico, California, Oregon, Ireland and Arizona.) Michele actively coaches and mentors others, with a significant following from technical females.
Outside of work, Michele served as a board member on the Chandler Chamber of Commerce (2012-2013) with CGCC’s president, Dr. Linda Lujan. Michele and her husband Brant, enjoy skiing, hiking, horseback riding and traveling with their two children, Monique and Curtis. Michele and her family enjoy giving back to the community by supporting Paz de Cristo food bank and serving as active members of their parish.
