Wouter A. Serdijn (M'98, SM'08, F'11) was born in Zoetermeer ('Sweet Lake City'), the Netherlands, in 1966. He received the M.Sc. (cum laude) and Ph.D. degrees from Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, in 1989 and 1994, respectively. Currently, he is a full professor in bioelectronics at Delft University of Technology, where he heads the Section Bioelectronics, and a visiting honorary professor at University College London, in the Analog and Biomedical Electronics group.
His research interests include integrated biomedical circuits and systems for biosignal conditioning and detection, neuroprosthetics, transcutaneous wireless communication, power management and energy harvesting as applied in, e.g., hearing instruments, cardiac pacemakers, cochlear implants, neurostimulators, portable, wearable, implantable and injectable medical devices and electroceuticals.
He is co-editor and co-author of the books Analog IC Design Techniques for Nanopower Biomedical Signal Processing (River Publishers 2016), Design of Efficient and Safe Neural Stimulators - a multidisciplinary approach (Springer, 2016), EMI-Resilient Amplifier Circuits (Springer 2013), Ultra Low-Power Biomedical Signal Processing: an analog wavelet filter approach for pacemakers (Springer, 2009), Circuits and Systems for Future Generations of Wireless Communications (Springer, 2009), Power Aware Architecting for data dominated applications (Springer, 2007), Adaptive Low-Power Circuits for Wireless Communications (Springer, 2006), Research Perspectives on Dynamic Translinear and Log-Domain Circuits (Kluwer, 2000), Dynamic Translinear and Log-Domain Circuits (Kluwer, 1998) and Low-Voltage Low-Power Analog Integrated Circuits (Kluwer, 1995). He authored and co-authored 8 book chapters, 3 patents and more than 300 scientific publications and presentations. He teaches Circuit Theory, Analog Integrated Circuit Design, Analog CMOS Filter Design, Active Implantable Biomedical Microsystems and Bioelectronics. He received the Electrical Engineering Best Teacher Award in 2001, in 2004 and in 2015.
He has served, a.o., as General Co-Chair for IEEE ISCAS 2015 and for IEEE BioCAS 2013, Technical Program Chair for IEEE BioCAS 2010 and for IEEE ISCAS 2010, 2012 and 2014, as a member of the Board of Governors (BoG) of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (2006—2011), as chair of the Analog Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Circuits and Systems society, and as Editor-in-Chief for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems—I: Regular Papers (2010—2011). Currently, he is the chair of the Steering Committee and an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems (T-BioCAS)
Wouter A. Serdijn is an IEEE Fellow, an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer and a mentor of the IEEE. In 2016, he received the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society Meritorious Service Award.
