Waleed Khalil, PhD
Waleed Khalil is currently serving as an Associate Professor at the ECE department and the ElectroScience Lab, The Ohio State University. He received his B.S.E.E. and M.S.E.E degrees from the University of Minnesota in 1992 and 1993, respectively, and his PhD degree from Arizona State University in 2008. He is a founder of CLASS (Circuit Laboratory for Advanced Sensors and Systems) at OSU where he conducts research in digital intensive RF and mm-wave circuits and systems, high performance clocking circuits, GHz A/D and D/A circuits. Prior to joining OSU, Dr. Khalil spent 16 years at Intel Corporation where he held various technical and leadership positions in wireless and wireline communication groups. While at Intel, he was appointed the lead engineer at the advanced wireless communications group, where he played an instrumental role in the development of the industry’s first Analog Front-end IC for third generation radios (3G). He established Intel’s first analog device modeling methodology for mixed signal circuit design and also contributed to the development of Intel’s first RF process technology. He later co-founded a startup group to develop Intel’s first RF front-end IC, as a principle leader of the radio transmitter chain. In 2010, he was awarded TSMC’s outstanding research award in the area of circuit design technologies. He authored and co-authored 11 issued and several other pending patents, over 60 journal and conference papers and three book/book chapters. He is a senior member in IEEE and serves in the steering committee for the RFIC Symposium and technical program committee for the Compound Semiconductor IC Symposium. He also teaches web-based classes and short courses for Besser Associates, Inc.
