Associate Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Dr. Mihai Sanduleanu received his MSc, MEE and PhD degrees from the Technical University of Iasi, Romania; Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands; and the University of Twente, The Netherlands; in 1990, 1993 and 1999, respectively. He received the Philips Foundation MSc and PhD Fellowship in 1993 and 1994 respectively.

From 1999 to 2000, Dr. Sanduleanu was with Philips Semiconductors, Nijmegen, The Netherlands, and he worked on fiber optic communication circuits. He then moved to Philips Research Eindhoven, The Netherlands, and was involved in fiber optic interface circuits, radio frequency (RF) interconnected chip (IC) design, mm-waves transceiver design and ultra-low power radios (2000-2007). While at Philips Research, Dr. Sanduleanu was Adjunct Professor in the Microelectronics group of Eindhoven University of Technology. In 2008, he spent six months at Inter-university Microelectronics Center (IMEC), Leuven, Belgium, conducting research on 60GHz transceiver design and THz electronics. From 2008 to 2013, he conducted research at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, New York, in mm-wave transceivers for communication, imaging and radar, high-speed analog-to-digital converters for wired/wireless communication systems and ultra-low power radios.

Dr. Sanduleanu is currently an Associate Professor at Khalifa University. His areas of expertise include wireless transceiver design for RF/mm-waves/THz communication, THz electronics, high speed communication circuits for serial input and output, high speed analog-to-digital converters, phased-array systems, imaging, fiber optic interface IC, ultra-low power radios, data and clock recovery and phase locked loop (PLL), high accuracy/low-power analog/mixed-signal circuits and systems, system on chip (SoC) design, on-chip sensors and actuators for autonomous transceivers (wired/wireless), high-speed digital circuits and systems, electromagnetics, and antenna design.

Dr. Sanduleanu has authored/co-authored four books and more than 80 papers in international conferences and journals. He also holds 51 granted US patents. Dr. Sanduleanu served as Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems and he serves in the Editorial Board of the Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing Journal.
