Professor Chan Carusone teaches and researches integrated circuits and systems. He graduated from U of T’s Engineering Science program receiving the Governor General’s Silver Medal in 1997. He joined the faculty in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering immediately after completing his PhD on the topic of Analog Adaptive Filters in 2002. He co-authored the classic textbook “Analog Integrated Circuit Design,” and an occasional consultant to industry. He has served on the editorial boards and technical program committees of practically all of the world’s leading journals and conferences on integrated circuit design. He and his graduate students have received 7 best-paper awards at leading IEEE conferences in the areas of chip-to-chip communication, optical transceivers, analog-to-digital conversion, and high-speed clocking. His research group is currently designing nanoscale planar and FinFET CMOS integrated circuits to tackle problems in several other branches of electrical and computer engineering including high-speed digital communication, imaging, and machine learning.
