Dr. ir. Michiel Pertijs

Michiel PertijsĀ received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering (both cum laude) from Delft University Technology in 2000 and 2005, respectively. From 2000 to 2005, he was a researcher with the Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory of Delft University of Technology, working on high-accuracy CMOS smart temperature sensors. The results of his research have been applied in several commercial temperature sensors in collaboration with NXP. From 2005 to 2008, Dr. Pertijs was with National Semiconductor, where he designed precision operational amplifiers and instrumentation amplifiers. From 2008 to 2009, he was a Sr. Researcher at imec / Holst Centre, where he worked on ultra-low-power electronics for wireless autonomous transducer systems.

In 2009, he joined the Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory of Delft University of Technology as an Assistant Professor. There, he heads the Energy-Efficient Sensor Systems group, working on energy-efficient sensors and interface electronics, and low-power integrated circuits for medical ultrasound. He teaches Measurement Science (EE1320) and Electronic Instrumentation (TN2211).

Dr. Pertijs has authored or co-authored 1 book, 8 patents, and over 45 technical papers. He received the ISSCC 2005 Jack Kilby Award for Outstanding Student Paper and the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits 2005 Best Paper Award. For his PhD research he was awarded the title ‘Simon Stevin Gezel’ by the Dutch Technology Foundation STW.

Dr. Pertijs is a member of the technical program committees of the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC), the IEEE Sensors Conference, and the IEEE PRIME Conference.
