Specifically, he currently has projects looking into the design of low phase-noise oscillators, high-speed phase-locked loops, and impulse-mode ultra-wideband transceivers.</p> November 13, 2019 - 12:21pm Brady Oppenheim https://ece.ucdavis.edu/directory/richard-spencer Ronald A. Soohoo https://ece.ucdavis.edu/directory/ronald-a-soohoo <p>Professor Soohoo’s research interests are in the areas of digital magnetic recording, computer devices and microwave electronics. His continuous contribution in these fields spans more than thirty years, as an educator, a researcher and a consultant. He is a IEEE fellow, a National Science Foundation Research Fellow at IBM, a NATO fellow at CNRS, France. He has been selected as an Outstanding Educator of America.</p> November 13, 2019 - 12:16pm Anonymous https://ece.ucdavis.edu/directory/ronald-a-soohoo G. Robert Redinbo https://ece.ucdavis.edu/directory/g-robert-redinbo <p>Professor Redinbo’s research is in the general area of the design and analysis of reliable computing resources, both at the digital system and subsystem levels. His work emphasizes fault-tolerant computer implementations and is motivated by theoretical concepts as well as practical experience. He is particularly interested in communication and signal processing functions that are affected by soft errors causing momentary malfunctions. Earth-orbiting satellites containing high-speed processing resources which support fast transforms and multiplexing operations are studied.

We are experts in high-speed digital circuits as well as low-power design. We specialize in low-power digital circuit libraries and optimal relationship between computational energy and speed. Our broader expertise is also in Computer Arithmetic, Media Signal Processing, Cryptography and System Architecture.</p> November 13, 2019 - 11:50am Anonymous https://ece.ucdavis.edu/directory/vojin-oklobdzija Tien C. “Steve” Hsia https://ece.ucdavis.edu/directory/tien-c-steve-hsia <p>Professor Hsia’s research focuses on the following areas: (1) robotics – advanced manipulator control, force sensing and multiple arm coordination, telerobotics, redundant arm kinematics and collision avoidance path planning, neural network applications, mobile robot navigation and control and medical robotics; and (2) adaptive systems – adaptive algorithms research for adaptive equalization and interference rejection, adaptive and robust control and system identification.</p> November 13, 2019 - 11:45am Anonymous https://ece.ucdavis.edu/directory/tien-c-steve-hsia Stephen B. Haley https://ece.ucdavis.edu/directory/stephen-haley <p>Professor Haley conducts theoretical research on superconducting micronetworks and devices and quantum networks and mesoscopic structures. In 1995, he discovered the fundamental phenomenon “quantized levitation,” and recently, he and Professor H. J. Fink showed that submicron width quantum Hall devices exhibit significant size effects and magnetic field oscillations. He developed the theory of internally orthogonal tracking solutions of the Schrvdinger equation, demonstrating that a solution subclass in which vector and scalar potentials are related and have minimum energy.</p> November 13, 2019 - 11:43am Anonymous https://ece.ucdavis.edu/directory/stephen-haley Mohammed Ghausi https://ece.ucdavis.edu/directory/mohammed-ghausi <p>M.S. Ghausi is a Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Computer Engineering as well as Dean Emeritus of the College of Engineering. His research interests are in electronics circuits and systems, network theory, and active filters. He is a recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Prize, the IEEE Centennial Medal, and the Circuits and Systems Society’s 1991 Education Award.</p> November 13, 2019 - 11:38am Anonymous https://ece.ucdavis.edu/directory/mohammed-ghausi
