Sudip Shekhar's research relates to the design of communication interfaces at the system and the circuits level. With data fueling so much of research and applications in the modern world, there is a constant need to transmit such data at high-speed but in an energy-efficient manner. Sudip's group at UBC addresses the complex challenges of designing such communication links at the wireless, wireline, optical or sensor interface. These span a gamut of applications such as the next generation cellphone communication and automotive radar, electrical signaling between computer chips and servers, optical signaling inside data-centers, and sensors for the Internet of Things.
Prior to UBC:
Prior to UBC, Sudip served as a Senior Research Scientist at the Circuits Research Lab, Intel Corporation, Oregon, where he worked for six years on high-speed interfaces. He received his Ph.D. and MS from the University of Washington, and B.Tech. from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India.
Sudip was a recipient of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems Darlington Best Paper Award in 2010 and a co-recipient of IEEE Radio-Frequency IC Symposium Best Student Paper Award in 2015. As a graduate student, he was the recipient of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Predoctoral Fellowship, the Intel Foundation Ph.D. Fellowship, and the Analog Devices Outstanding Student Designer Award.
Sudip spends his free time in the outdoors, enjoying the pacific northwest.
