Research Interests:

Analog, mixed-signal, and RF integrated circuit design and test in CMOS processes, including optimization methodologies for analog CMOS design. Applications include biomedical neural implants, positron emission tomography (PET) medical imaging, and micropower battery-operated consumer products.

Modeling and analog, mixed-signal design in emerging organic and ZnO thin-film, FET technologies. Potential applications include large-area, low-cost electronic systems and hybrid systems configured with sensors and devices in the emerging technologies or CMOS technologies.
