Biography

Shingo Mandai was born in Ako, Hyogo, Japan in 1984. He received the B.S. degree in department of electronic engineering and the M.S. degree in department of electrical engineering and information systems from the University of Tokyo in 2008 and 2010, respectively. Based on the achievements during master course, he was appointed as a Research Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (DC1) from April till August in 2010. In August 2010, he joined a Ph.D course in Delft University of Technology under the supervision of Professor Edoardo Charbon. During the Ph.D course, he also worked as analog circuit design intern in Omnivision Technologies Norway AS for three months and acquired the evaluation of ´┐Żoutstanding contribution´┐Ż. His current research interests include a new pixel and sensor design of bio-medical applications including digital silicon photomultipliers (D-SiPMs) for PET applications, architecture and design of high-speed 3-D image sensors, and time-to-digital conversion technique. Shingo Mandai has received several awards including an excellent master thesis award from the University of Tokyo.
