Eran Socher (S’96–M’03 SM’12) received the B.A. degree in physics (summa cum laude), and B.Sc. (summa cum laude), M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering, all from the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology, where he worked on CMOS compatible MEMS sensors and actuators and their readout electronics, especially for uncooled thermal imaging. From 2003 to 2006, he was a research engineer in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and an adjunct lecturer at the Technion and Bar-Ilan University. From 2006 to 2008, he was a visiting researcher at the High Speed Electronics Laboratory and a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), CA, USA. Since October 2008, he is a faculty member (now tenured) at the School of Electrical Engineering of Tel Aviv University (TAU) and Head of the High Frequency Integrated Circuits Lab. He is also a Visiting Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto. He has co-authored over 30 journal and 60 conference papers. His research interests are currently focused on RF and mm-wave CMOS circuit design for high data rate (>20Gbps) communication, THz sensing and imaging and interfaces to the chip at these frequencies (on-chip antennas, transitions to waveguide). He holds 6 patents and consults to industry on RFIC design and characterization. Dr. Socher is the recipient of several teaching and research awards and scholarships, including the TAU Rector’s Prize for Excellent Teaching.He was treasurer for the Israel IEEE section and its bi-annual convention and served in the TPC of previous conventions and IEEE COMCAS 2013 and 2015. He was also the General Assembly member of the European Microwave Association representing group 11.
