Elad Alon

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 a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences as well as a co-director of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC). He has held consulting or visiting positions at Cadence, Xilinx, Sun Labs, Intel, AMD, Rambus, Hewlett Packard, and IBM Research, where he worked on digital, analog, and mixed-signal integrated circuits for computing, test and measurement, and high-speed communications. Dr. Alon received the IBM Faculty Award in 2008, the 2009 Hellman Family Faculty Fund Award, the 2010 UC Berkeley Electrical Engineering Outstanding Teaching Award, the 2010 ISSCC Jack Raper Award for Outstanding Technology Directions Paper, the 2011 Symposium on VLSI Circuits Best Student Paper Award, and the 2012 Custom Integrated Circuits Conference Best Student Paper Award. His research focuses on energy-efficient integrated systems, including the circuit, device, communications, and optimization techniques used to design them.
