About Me


My name is Frank Yaul and I'm currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where I also received the S.B. and M.Eng. degrees in 2011.

I'm a member of the Energy-Efficient Circuits & Systems Group under Professor Anantha Chandrakasan. The group works on a variety of low-power integrated circuits, ranging from hardware accelerators to RF transceivers. My research currently focuses on amplifiers and data converters for sensor signals. We are trying to design circuits which leverage signal characteristics in order to save power. Compressed sensing is an example of such a technique. The broader goal is to develop technologies to support wireless sensor networks, which can be used for environmental, building, machine, or medical monitoring. In general, my research interests include sensors, signal processing, and mixed-signal integrated circuits. Please see the research page for a list of publications.
