Distinguished Lecturer Program

The SSCS DL Program provides experts in the Society’s areas of interest to speak at chapter meetings and regional seminars. Our lecturers, who serve for overlapping two-year terms, are deeply knowledgeable and excellent communicators. Their range of topics focuses on current IC activities, such as technology direction; novel devices, memories, and radio technology; high-speed and precision data converters; wireline and on-chip communication; low-noise clocking, and low power design. I encourage SSCS chapters to benefit from our DLs’ expertise. I also wish to thank our emeritus DLs for their service.

Naveen Verma received the B.A.Sc. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the UBC, Vancouver, Canada in 2003, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from MIT in 2005 and 2009 respectively. Since July 2009 he has been at Princeton University, where he is current Director of the Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research focuses on advanced sensing systems, exploring how systems for learning, inference, and action planning can be enhanced by algorithms that exploit new sensing and computing technologies. This includes research on large-area, flexible sensors, energy-efficient statistical-computing architectures and circuits, and machine-learning and statistical-signal-processing algorithms. Prof. Verma has served as a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society, and on a number of conference program committees and advisory groups. Prof. Verma is the recipient of numerous teaching and research awards, including several best-paper awards, with his students.
