From Murmann Mixed-Signal Group
Sony Faculty Scholar
Department of Electrical Engineering
Boris Murmann is an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of California at 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. Dr. Murmann’s research interests are in the area of mixed-signal integrated circuit design, with special emphasis on data converters and sensor interfaces. In 2008, he was a co-recipient of the Best Student Paper Award at the VLSI Circuits Symposium in 2008 and a recipient of the Best Invited Paper Award at the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC). He received the Agilent Early Career Professor Award in 2009 and the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award in 2012. He currently serves as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, the Data Converter Subcommittee Chair of the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) and as a program committee member of the European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC). He is an elected AdCom member of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society.

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 should be to apply to our graduate 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!
