Brief Biography

Nathan M. Neihart (M’09—SM’14) received both the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, in 2004. He received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington, Seattle, in 2008, where he received the Analog Devices Inc., Outstanding Student Designer Award in 2007. In 2008 he joined Iowa State University, Ames, where he is now an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research interests include reconfigurable RF circuits and systems for multi-band/multi-mode radios and circuits and systems for sensing applications. From 2010 to 2012, Dr. Neihart served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems-II: Express Briefs and from 2012 to 2014 as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems-I: Regular Papers.
