Research Interests

My research interests include:

  1. The design of analog circuits and systems for mixed-signal ICs and System-On-a-Chip (SOC) ICs - especially data converters, signal conditioning circuits, and communications / RF circuits.
  2. Development of CAD Tools to support the analog IC design flow.
  3. Design of integrated microelectromechanical systems and control/sensing electronics - for both inertial sensing and for IC-based mass data storage devices.
