Bogdan Staszewski，University College Dublin ，Ireland
R. Bogdan Staszewski received his PhD from University of Texas at Dallas, USA in 2002. He joined Texas Instruments in Dallas, Texas in 1995. In 1999 he co-started a Digital RF Processor (DRP) group in TI with a mission to invent new digitally intensive approaches to traditional RF functions. Dr. Staszewski served as a CTO of the DRP group between 2007 and 2009. In July 2009 he joined Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Since Sept. 2014 he is a Full Professor at University College Dublin (UCD) in Ireland. He has co-authored 130 journal and 200 conference publications, and holds 200 issued US patents. His research interests include nanoscale CMOS architectures and circuits for frequency synthesizers, transmitters and receivers, as well as quantum computers. He is a co-founder of a startup company Equal1 Labs aiming at building the first practical CMOS quantum computer. He is an IEEE Fellow and a recipient of IEEE Circuits and Systems Industrial Pioneer Award.
Elena Blokhina，University College Dublin ，Ireland
Elena Blokhina received the Habilitation HDR (equiv. D.Sc.) degree in electronic engineering from UPMC Sorbonne Universities, France, in 2017, the Ph.D. degree in physical and mathematical sciences and the M.Sc degree in physics from Saratov State University, Russia, in 2006 and 2002 respectively. Since 2007, she has been with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of University College Dublin, Ireland, and is currently an Associate Professor and the coordinator of the Circuits and Systems Research Group. Prof Blokhina is a Senior member of IEEE and the Chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Nonlinear Circuits and Systems. She had been elected to serve as a member of the Boards of Governors of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society for the term 2013-2015 and has been re-elected for the term 2015-2017. In 2016-2017 Prof Blokhina was an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I, and since 2018 she is the Deputy Editor in Chief of that Journal. Her research interests include the design, theory and modelling of micro/quantum systems and electronics. She is CTO Equal1 Labs Ireland aiming at building a CMOS quantum computer.
