Harish Krishnaswamy received the B.Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras, India, in 2001, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California (USC) in 2003 and 2009, respectively. He joined the Electrical Engineering department of Columbia University as an Assistant Professor in 2009. His research deals with the theoretical analysis, implementation and experimental validation of the RF, millimeter-wave and terahertz integrated circuits in silicon-based technologies. Specific research directions include linear-yet-efficient high-power (watt-class) millimeter-wave amplifiers in CMOS, CMOS-based terahertz circuits and systems, and broadband reconfigurable RF transceivers for cognitive and software-defined radio. This research is funded by several federal agencies, notably DARPA and NSF, and by industry.
Harish received the IEEE International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) Lewis Winner Award for Outstanding Paper in 2007. He also received the Best Thesis in Experimental Research Award from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering in 2009, and the DARPA Young Faculty Award in 2011. He serves on the Technical Program Committees of several IEEE conferences, including the RFIC Symposium and VLSI-D.
