About Kaushik Sengupta

Hua Wang Hua Wang (M'05-SM'15) received his B.S. degree from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2003, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, in 2007 and 2009, respectively. He was with Guidant Corporation during the summer of 2004, working on accelerometer-based posture monitoring systems for implantable biomedical devices. In 2010, he joined Intel Corporation, where he worked on the next generation energy-efficient mm-wave communication link and broadband CMOS Front-End-Module for Wi-Fi systems. In 2011, he joined Skyworks Solutions. His work at Skyworks included the development of SAW-less integrated filter solutions for low-cost cellular-standard Front-End-Module. In 2012, he joined the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology as an assistant professor. He currently holds the Demetrius T. Paris Junior Professorship of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is generally interested in innovating mixed-signal, RF, and mm-Wave integrated circuits and systems for communication, radar, and bioelectronics applications. Dr. Wang received National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award in 2015, Roger P. Webb ECE Outstanding Junior Faculty Member Award in 2015, and Lockheed Martin Dean's Excellence in Teaching Award in 2015. He was the award recipient of the 46th IEEE DAC/ISSCC Student Design Contest Winner in 2009 based on his work of "An Ultrasensitive CMOS Magnetic Biosensor Array for Point-Of-Care (POC) Microarray Application." He was also a co-recipient of the IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Symposium (RFIC) Best Student Paper Award (1st Place) as the students' Ph.D. advisor in 2014. Dr. Wang is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters (MWCL). He is currently a Technical Program Committee (TPC) Member for IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Symposium (RFIC), IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC), IEEE Biopolar/BiCMOS Circuits and Technology Meeting (BCTM), and IEEE/CAS-EMB Biomedical Circuits and Systems Conference (BioCAS). He serves as the Chair of the Atlanta's IEEE CAS/SSCS joint chapter, which won the IEEE SSCS Outstanding Chapter Award in 2014. Kaushik Sengupta Kaushik Sengupta (M'12) received the B.Tech. and M.Tech. degrees in electronics and electrical communication engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, India, both in 2007, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, USA, in 2008 and 2012, respectively. In February 2013, he joined the faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA. During his undergraduate studies, in the summers of 2005 and 2006, he performed research at the University of Southern California and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he was involved with nonlinear integrated systems for high-purity signal generation and low-power RF identification (RFID) tags, respectively. His research interests are in the areas of high-frequency integrated circuits (ICs), electromagnetics, optics for various applications in sensing, imaging, and high-speed communication. Dr. Sengupta was the recipient of the IBM Ph.D. fellowship (2011-2012), the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Predoctoral Achievement Award (2012), the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Graduate Fellowship (2012), and the Analog Devices Outstanding Student Designer Award (2011).
