Arun Natarajan received the B.Tech. degree in electrical engineering from IIT Madras, Chennai, India, in 2001, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, USA, in 2003 and 2007, respectively.
From 2007 to 2012, he was a Research Staff Member with the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, New York, NY, USA, where he was involved in millimeter-wave (mm-wave) phased arrays for multi-Gb/s data links and airborne radar, and on self-healing circuits for increased yield in sub-micrometer process technologies. In 2012, he joined Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR, USA, as an Assistant Professor with the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. His current interests include RF, mm-wave and sub-mm-wave integrated circuits, and systems for high-speed wireless communication and imaging.
Dr. Natarajan was a recipient of the National Talent Search Scholarship from the Government of India from 1995 to 2000, the California Institute of Technology Atwood Fellowship in 2001, the Analog Devices Outstanding Student IC Designer Award in 2004, the IBM Research Fellowship in 2005, the 2011 Pat Goldberg Memorial Award for the Best Paper in computer science/electrical engineering/mathematics at IBM Research. He serves on the Technical Program Committee of the IEEE Radio frequency Integrated Circuits Conference, the IEEE Compound Semi-Conductor IC Symposium, and the 2013 IEEE International Microwave Symposium.
