About Me

Eric A. M. Klumperink (IEEE Member '98, Senior Member '06, Fellow '20)  was born on April 4th, 1960, in Lichtenvoorde, The Netherlands. He received a B.Sc. degree from HTS, Enschede (1982), worked in industry on digital hardware and software, and then joined the University of Twente, Enschede, in 1984, shifting focus to analog CMOS circuit research. This resulted in several publications and his Ph.D. thesis "Transconductance Based CMOS Circuits: Circuit Generation, Classification and Analysis" (1997). In 1998, Eric started as Assistant Professor at the IC-Design Laboratory in Twente and shifted research focus to RF CMOS circuits during a sabbatical in 2001 at Ruhr Universitaet Bochum, Germany. Since 2006, he is an Associate Professor, teaching Analog & RF IC Electronics and guiding PhD and MSc projects related to RF CMOS circuit design with focus on Software Defined Radio, Cognitive Radio and Beamforming. Eric served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE TCAS-II (2006-2007), IEEE TCAS-I (2008-2009) and the IEEE JSSC (2010-2014), as IEEE SSC Distinguished Lecturer (2014/2015), and as member of the technical program committees of conferences ISSCC (2011-2016), RFIC Symposium (2011-2021) and ESSCIRC (2019-). He holds 15 patents, authored and co-authored over 200 internationally refereed journal and conference papers, and was recognized as 20+ ISSCC paper contributor over 1954-2013. He is a co-recipient of the ISSCC 2002 and the ISSCC 2009 "Van Vessem Outstanding Paper Award" and is an IEEE Fellow.
