Amir Zjajo (Senior Member IEEE) received the M.Sc. and DIC degrees from the Imperial College London, London, U.K., in 2000 and the PhD. degree from Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands in 2010, all in electrical engineering. In 2000, he joined Philips Research Laboratories as a member of the research staff in the Mixed-Signal Circuits and Systems Group. From 2006 until 2009, he was with Corporate Research of NXP Semiconductors as a Senior Research Scientist. He joined Delft University of Technology in 2009. In 2018, he co-founded Innatera Nanosystems B.V. to commercialize bionic signal processing technology.

Dr. Zjajo has published more than 90 papers in referenced journals and conference proceedings, and holds more than 10 US patents or patent pending. He is the author of the books Brain-Machine Interface: Circuits and Systems (Springer, 2016, Chinese translation, 2020), Low-Voltage High-Resolution A/D Converters: Design, Test and Calibration (Springer, 2011, Chinese translation, 2015) and Stochastic Process Variations in Deep-Submicron CMOS: Circuits and Algorithms (Springer, 2014), and he is the editor of Real-Time Multi-Chip Neural Network for Cognitive Systems (River Publishers, 2019). He served as a member of Technical Program Committee of IEEE International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design, IEEE Design, Automation and Test in Europe Conference, and IEEE International Symposium on VLSI,  and as a technical reviewer of IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems, and IEEE Biomedical Circuits and Systems Conference.

His research interests include energy-efficient mixed-signal circuit and system design for biomedical and mobile applications, on-chip machine learning and inference, and bionic electronic circuits for autonomous cognitive systems. Dr. Zjajo won best/excellence paper award at BioDevices’15 and LifeTech’19.
