Domine M. W. Leenaerts (M’94-SM’96-F’2005) received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in 1992.
From 1992 to 1999, he was with Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) as an Associate Professor with the Micro-electronic Circuit Design group. In 1995, he was a Visiting Scholar with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of California, Berkeley. In 1997, he was an Invited Professor at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland.

From 1999 to 2006 he has been a Senior Principal Scientist with Philips Research Laboratories, Eindhoven, where he is involved in RF integrated transceiver design. In 2006, he moved to NXP Semiconductors, where he is now a Fellow. He currently leads the RF Advanced Development Team and is part-time professor at the TU/e. He has published over 250 papers in scientific and technical journals and conference proceedings and holds several US patents. He has coauthored several books, including Circuit Design for RF Transceivers (Boston, MA: Kluwer, 2001).

Dr. Leenaerts served as IEEE Distinguished Lecturer in 2001-2003 and 2009-2011, as Associate Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS-PART I (2002-2004) and as Associate Editor of the IEEE JOURNAL OF SOLID-STATE CIRCUITS (2007-2010). He was Special Guest Editor of IEEE JOURNAL OF SOLID-STATE CIRCUITS in 2011.

He was in the period 2005-2008 the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society Member representative in the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Administrative Committee on which he was until 2016 an elected member and Distinguished Lecturer Program Chair.

Dr. Leenaerts serves currently on the Steering Committee of the European Solid- State Circuits Conference, and on the Steering Committee of the IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC).
He is the co-recipient of several best paper awards.
