About Debasis Dawn

Debasis Dawn received his Bachelor of Engineering (B.E) from Jadavpur Univ., India in 1986, M.Tech from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, India in 1989 and Ph.D degrees from Tohoku Univ., Japan in 1993 all in electrical engineering. He was Research Associate at Tohoku Univ., during 1993 to 1998 and was engaged in doing research in the area of development of RF/Microwave/Millimeter-Wave integrated circuits and Millimeter-Wave Photonic circuits for RF-photonic interactions. He was Research Engineer at Fujitsu Laboratories Limited, Japan during 1998 to 2004. His developed ICs at Fujitsu were commercialized and used in automotive radar of Toyota vehicles. In 2005 he joined SONY Corp., Japan and held Sr. MMIC Design Engineer position. His developed ICs at SONY were used in PlayStation. During 2006~2012 he was a Research Engineer at Georgia Electronic Design Center and Adjunct Faculty at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta. At Georgia Tech he was leading the research efforts in the development of RF Front-end circuits, system-on-chip solutions for gigabit Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN), radar, and wireless sensors applications using silicon-based CMOS/SiGe process technologies. In 2012 he joined Electrical and Computer Engineering department of North Dakota State University as an Assistant Professor and has been promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2018. In 2018 he joined University of Washington, Tacoma as Associate Professor with tenure. His recent research interests are CMOS Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) development for new generation of highly integrated multifunctional devices, circuits and systems which promises a wide range of applications in science, engineering and medicine. He is serving as reviewers of numerous technical journals such as IEEE Trans. Microwave Theory and Techniques (T-MTT), Electronics Letter, IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters and in the technical program review committee member of IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (IEEE MTT-S) International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in the “power amplifier devices and circuits” and held session chair positions numerous times at IMS. He has served as NSF panelists. He has published more than 60 papers in international journals and conferences and holds two US patents. He is a senior member of IEEE.
