Dr. David Ricketts

| Biography

Ricketts received his PhD in engineering and applied sciences from Harvard University and his BS and MS degrees in electrical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Prior to joining academia, he spent eight years in industry developing more than 40 integrated circuits in mixed-signal, RF and power management applications. Ricketts' research crosses the fields of physics, materials science and circuit design, investigating the ultimate capabilities of microelectronic devices and how these devices are harnessed by differing circuit topologies to produce the highest performing systems.

Research Interests
Micro- and nano-integrated circuits, systems and devices for analog and high-speed applications.

| Education

  1. 2006 - PhD in Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA
