Position: 
Assistant Professor
Laboratory Affiliation: 
Intel Microprocessors Laboratory
Room: 
409
Telephone Number: 
+63-2-981-8500 ext 3380
Educational Background: 
PhD Electrical Engineering (Circuits and Systems) Imperial College London, 2011
Research Interest/Activities: 

I am currently interested in developing circuit techniques for low power reconfigurable analog circuits, low energy wireless sensor nodes and energy harvesters from multiple sources. I am a member of the Microelectronics and Microprocessors Laboratory . Together with my colleagues, we use these circuits in applications related to resilient large scale sensor/actuator systems.
