BEaR (Bio-Electronics and RFIC) Lab

Principle Investigator: Dr. Vincent Leung

Vincent Leung (M’00-SM’19) received the B.Eng (Honors) and M.Eng. degrees from McGill University (Montreal, Canada) in 1995 and 1997, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) in 2004, all in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).

He had nearly two decades of industrial analog/RF IC R&D experience: Analog Devices (1997-2000), IBM T. J. Watson Research (2004-2005), Silicon Laboratories (2005-2008). At Qualcomm San Diego (2008-2016), he held key design and lead positions for 3G/4G RF chips found in virtually all smartphones at the time. In 2016, he joined UCSD/ Qualcomm Institute as the Technical Director of Circuits Lab, where he researched circuit techniques for biomedical and IoT applications. He had taught graduate courses on Analog VLSI and RFICs at Columbia University (NY, 2007-2009) and UCSD (2017-2019), respectively. He has co-authored more than 40 technical papers in referred journals and conference proceedings and holds 13 US patents.

In 2020, he joined Baylor University (Waco, TX) as an Associate Professor in the ECE department. His current research interests include neurotechnology and RF/ mm-Wave ICs. He is also a Faculty Research Engineer (2022-) at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (Crane, IN) and a visiting Associate Professor (2023-) at Brown University (Providence, RI).
