Ali Niknejad, Professor

Ali M. Niknejad received the B.S.E.E. degree from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1994, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1997 and 2000. From 2000 to 2002, he worked at Silicon Laboratories in Austin, TX, where he was involved with the design and research of CMOS RF integrated circuits and devices for wireless communication applications. Currently, he is a professor in the EECS department at UC Berkeley. He is a co-director of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC) and also the co-director of the BSIM Research Group. He served as an associate editor of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits and on the TPC for the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) and the Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC). His current research interests lie in the areas of RF/microwave and mm-wave integrated circuits, particularly as applied to wireless communications and medical applications. His interests also include device modeling and numerical techniques in electromagnetics.
