Current Whereabouts: The Secret Laboratory

I finished at imec in early 2021, and lately I’ve been taking some time to acquire new skillsets and to pursue personal goals.

Although I’m currently working on other research directions, I continue to stay active in the circuits community, and am available for limited contracting and consulting work if the project is the right fit. If you need record-breaking ADCs and product-ready ringamp-based technologies, let’s talk.

About Me

From 2013 – 2021 I was a Principal Member of Technical Staff at imec in Leuven, Belgium in the wireless research group, conducting research on a range of topics in software defined radio, mmWave, emerging 5G technologies, IoT, and radar. My specialties are ADCs and ring amplifiers. The projects I worked on span the entire receiver chain, from the RF frontend down to the ADC. Prior to joining imec, I did my PhD at Oregon State University, USA under Dr. Un-Ku Moon. My thesis was on scalable amplification solutions for switched capacitor circuits, where I introduced the idea of ring amplification and designed several pipelined ADCs. Outside of work, I’m pretty obsessed with rock climbing.
