Hi there! My name is Frank Yaul and I'm currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where I also received the S.B. and M.Eng. degrees in 2011.
Currently, I'm a member of the Energy-Efficient Integrated Circuits & Systems Group under Professor Anantha Chandrakasan. My research is in integrated circuit design. Specifically, we are working on amplifiers and analog to digital converters (ADCs) for sensor signals. We are trying to design circuits which take advantage of signal characteristics in order to save power. Compressed sensing is an example of such a technique. The broader goal is to develop technologies to help create smart dust for environmental or structural monitoring.
During my time as an undergraduate and as a Master's student, I've also done a bit of work in MEMS pressure sensing and vibration energy harvesting with Professor Jeffrey Lang. The research page contains additional details, as well as a list of publications.
See something you're interested in? Have any questions? Let me know. Let's talk about it.
