Short Bio

Boris Murmann is a Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. He joined Stanford in 2004 after completing his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering at the University of California, Berkeley in 2003. From 1994 to 1997, he was with Neutron Microelectronics, Germany, where he developed low-power and smart-power ASICs in automotive CMOS technology. Since 2004, he has worked as a consultant with numerous Silicon Valley companies. Dr. Murmann’s research interests are in mixed-signal integrated circuit design, with special emphasis on sensor interfaces, data converters and custom circuits for statistical inference.

Prospective Students

I receive a large number of emails from prospective students asking me to evaluate their resumes and inquiring and about research assistantships in my group. Please do not be disappointed if I do not respond or respond only with a short email; I simply do not have the bandwidth to run my own admissions office on the side. If you are interested in joining my group, your first step is to apply to our PhD program. I can then evaluate your folder during admissions season and see how you rank against the other applicants that are interested in joining my group. I tend to take on only 2-3 new students each year, and so I need to be selective and defer my evaluations and decisions until I see the entire pool of applicants in December/January. Thanks for your interest!
