Kamran Souri received his M.Sc. (cum laude) and Ph.D. from the Electrical Instrumentation Laboratory, Delft University of Technology, in 2009 and 2016, respectively. In 2014 he joined SiTime Corp., Santa Clara, CA, USA, where he worked on the design of MEMS-based frequency references. In 2017, Dr. Souri started SiTime’s design center in Delft, where he is currently the Director of Circuit Design Engineering. His research interests include the design of low-power, energy-efficient sensor interfaces, data converters and precision analog circuits. He has authored or co-authored over 20 peer-reviewed scientific papers, one book, and holds several U.S. patents. For his Ph.D. research, Dr. Souri was awarded the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Pre-doctoral Achievement Award, in 2013.
Zhichao Tan (Senior Member, IEEE) received the B.Eng. degree from Xi’an Jiaotong University, Xi’an, China, in 2004, the M.Eng. degree from Peking University, Beijing, China, in 2008, and the Ph.D. degree from Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, in 2013.
He was a Staff IC Design Engineer working on low-power high-precision analog/mixed-signal circuit design with Analog Devices Inc., Wilmington, MA, USA, from 2013 to 2019. In 2019, he joined Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, as a Faculty Member. He holds 5 U.S. patents and authored or coauthored more than 40 technique papers. His current research interests are in the areas of energy-efficient sensor interfaces, precision analog circuits, and ultralow-power analog-to-digital converters (ADCs).
Dr. Tan is currently an Associate Editor of the IEEE SENSORS JOURNAL. He served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS I: REGULAR PAPERS and IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INDUSTRIAL ELECTRONICS. He was the a TPC Member of IEEE Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference and IEEE Sensors Conference. He was the Chair of IEEE Industrial Electronics Society Technical Committee on MEMS and Nanotechnology from 2019 to 2020.
Massimo Alioto is a Professor at the ECE Department of the National University of Singapore, where he leads the Green IC group, the Integrated Circuits and Embedded Systems area, and the FD-fAbrICS center on intelligent&connected systems. Previously, he held positions at the University of Siena, Intel Labs – CRL (2013), University of Michigan – Ann Arbor (2011-2012), University of California – Berkeley (2009-2011), EPFL – Lausanne.
He is (co)author of 330+ publications on journals and conference proceedings, and four books with Springer. His primary research interests include ultra-low power and self-powered systems, green computing, circuits for machine intelligence, hardware security, and emerging technologies.
He is the Editor in Chief of the IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems, Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society, and was Deputy Editor in Chief of the IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems. Previously, Prof. Alioto was the Chair of the “VLSI Systems and Applications” Technical Committee of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (2010-2012), Distinguished Lecturer (2009-2010) and member of the Board of Governors (2015-2020). He served as Guest Editor of numerous journal special issues, Technical Program Chair of several IEEE conferences (ISCAS 2023, SOCC, PRIME, ICECS), and TPC member (ISSCC, ASSCC). Prof. Alioto is an IEEE Fellow.
