Jacques “Chris”tophe Rudell received degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan (BS), and UC Berkeley (MS, PhD). After completing his degrees, he worked for several years as an RF IC designer at Berkana Wireless (now Qualcomm), and Intel Corporation. In January 2009, he joined the faculty at the University of Washington, Seattle, where he is now an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is also a member of the Center for Neural Technology (CNT) and serves as the co-director of the Center for Design of Analog-Digital Integrated Circuits (CDADIC).
While a PhD student at UC Berkeley, Dr. Rudell received the Demetri Angelakos Memorial Achievement Award, a citation given to one student per year by the EECS department. He has twice been co-recipient of best paper awards at the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the first of which was the 1998 Jack Kilby Award, followed by the 2001 Lewis Winner Award. He received the 2008 ISSCC best evening session award, and best student paper awards at the 2011 and 2015 IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Symposium (RFIC). He is the recipient of the National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award. Dr. Rudell served on the ISSCC technical program committee (2003-2010), and on the MTT-IMS Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) Symposium steering committee (2002-2013), where he was the 2013 General Chair. He was an Associate Editor for the Journal of Solid-State Circuits (2009-2015) and he currently serves on the Technical Program Committee for both the IEEE European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCiRC) and the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC).
