Speaker Bio

Soumyajit Mandal received his B. Tech degree in Electronics and Electrical Communications Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India in 2002 with top honors. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from MIT in 2004 and 2009, respectively. His doctoral thesis on “Collective Analog Bioelectronic Computation” was awarded the MIT Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL) Doctoral Dissertation Award in recognition of outstanding research of interest to a broad audience. From 2010-2014 he was a Research Scientist at the Schlumberger-Doll Research Center in Cambridge, MA.  He is currently the T. and A. Schroeder Assistant Professor at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) in Cleveland, OH. His research interests include integrated circuits and systems, magnetic resonance (MR) sensors, and biomedical imaging. He has worked on bio-inspired (neuromorphic and cytomorphic) integrated circuits, biomedical circuits and systems, integrated structural health monitoring systems, MEMS/NEMS interface circuits, RF energy harvesting, low-power RF systems, low-field and zero-field magnetic resonance, and other topics. He was awarded the Mentor, Learning, and T. Keith Glennan Fellowships by the CWRU University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE), as well as Nord and ACES grants by CWRU for innovations in teaching and course development. He has published over 85 papers in international journals and conferences, and has been awarded 10 patents.
