CURRENT GROUP MEMBERS
Raghavendra Haresamudram, Ph.D. Student
Raghu Haresamudram obtained his BE in Electrical Engineering from BITS-Pilani, India in 2007 and MS in Electrical Engineering from UC San Diego in 2016. Raghu is presently with Broadcom designing high-speed serial interfaces, simultaneously working to finish his PhD at UCSD. Prior to UCSD, he was with Maxlinear from 2013 to 2014 developing their first RF front-end IC for satellite TVs, and with Cosmic Circuits (now Cadence Inc.) from 2007 to 2013, designing power management ICs for portable applications. Raghu’s research interests broadly lie in circuits and signal processing techniques for wireless and wireline communications and focus of his PhD is on calibration techniques to digitally enhance cellular receivers for blocker tolerance.
Amr Eissa, Ph.D. Student
Amr I. Eissa received the BS. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt, in 2012 and 2016, respectively. He is currently working towards the Ph.D. degree in electronic circuits and systems at the University of California, San Diego. From 2013 to 2016, he was Teaching assistant with the Electronics and Communications Engineering Department and a Research Assistant at the Integrated Circuits Laboratory, both at Ain Shams University, where he conducted research on data converters for biomedical applications. His research interests include the analysis and design of mixed-signal integrated circuits and systems.
