Elad Alon

Associate Professor, University of California, Berkeley

Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences

Dr. Alon received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2001, 2002, and 2006, respectively. In Jan. 2007, he joined the University of California at Berkeley, where he is now an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciencesa as well as a co-director of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC). His expertise is in energy-efficiency integrated system and circuit design, and his research group has explored a variety of applications including computing, communications, and biological interfaces. He has visiting or consulting positions at several leading semiconductor companies and has received a number of awards, including the 2010 UC Berkeley Electrical Engineering Outstanding Teaching Award and the Jack Raper Award for Outstanding Technology Directions Paper at the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference.
