RESEARCH PROFILE

Hao Gao is with the Mixed-Signal Microelectronics research group at the TU/e department of Electrical Engineering. His expertise is in Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits and Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits, with a focus at Tx/Rx and ultra-low-power transceiver IC realization. In particular, he focuses on Radio-frequency IC design in silicon-based technologies; Monolithic microwave IC design; Analog and mixed-signal IC design; Wireless Power Receivers; and IoT.  

ACADEMIC BACKGROUND

Hao Gao received an MSc in Information Engineering from Southeast University (Nanjing, China) in 2006, and an MSc in Microelectronics from Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands) in 2008. He then moved to Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e, the Netherlands). In 2011, he obtained his PdEng with his thesis on 'Design of RF energy harvesting for monolithic wireless sensor networks'. In 2015, he obtained his PhD with his thesis on 'Fully integrated ultra-low power mm-wave wireless sensor design methods'. After being a postdoc researcher at Delft University of Technology in 2015, he returned to TU/e to became an assistant professor with the IC group at the TU/e department of Electrical Engineering, in January 2016.   Dr. Gao was a recipient of the Philips Semiconductor Scholarship, Delft, in 2006. He was the recipient of the IMS and ISCAS grant. He was the recipient and co-recipient of several best paper rewards, including IEEE MTT-S Radio Wireless Week Award, International Conference on Information and Communications Signal Processing Award, IEEE MTT-S International Wireless Symposium Award, IEEE IMS student design competition award. He was in in the finalist for IMS and RFIC as well. He was also the co-recipient of 2015 ISSCC Distinguished Technical Paper Award. He has served as a TPC for ISSCC SRP, RFIC, IWS, and TPC co-chair of RFIT. He is also a member in the Editor Board of the Cambridge Wireless Power Transfer Journal, and guest editor of MIcroelectronics Journal.
