Gerald E. Sobelman received a B.S. in physics, summa cum laude, from the University of California, Los Angeles and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from Harvard University. Subsequently, he became a Research Associate at The Rockefeller University, where he worked on computational problems in theoretical physics.
He then joined Sperry Corporation as a Senior Electrical Engineer, where he worked in the area of device modeling for circuit simulation. He was later appointed Manager of MOS Device Development, and directed the effort to design and optimize devices for scaled CMOS technologies. He became a Senior Technical Consultant in the Advanced ECAD department of Control Data Corporation and he received the Technical Excellence award from CDC for his research on silicon compilation.
Professor Sobelman is currently a full Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Minnesota, U.S. His research activities are primarily in the area of digital VLSI design, with applications in communications and signal processing. He is interested in digital baseband architectures and FPGA implementations for a wide range of wireless systems, including OFDM, MIMO, UWB, Cognitive Radio and Software Defined Radio. His work also includes the design techniques for high-speed and low-power wired communications platforms, including Network-On-Chip architectures and multilevel signaling techniques. He was appointed as a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, as well as the Chair of the Technical Committee on Circuits and Systems for Communications of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society from May 2008 to May 2010. He was also an Associate Editor for IEEE Trans Circuit and System I for 2010-2011.
