Principal Investigator


Prof. Robert Bogdan Staszewski is a CONNECT Principal Investigator at University College Dublin.

Robert Bogdan Staszewski (Fellow, IEEE) was born in Białystok, Poland. He received the B.Sc. (summa cum laude), M.Sc., and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from The University of Texas at Dallas, Richardson, TX, USA, in 1991, 1992, and 2002, respectively.
From 1991 to 1995, he was with Alcatel Network Systems, Richardson, where he was involved in SONET cross-connect systems for fiber optics communications. In 1995, he joined Texas Instruments Inc., Dallas, TX, USA, where he was an elected Distinguished Member of Technical Staff (limited to 2% of technical staff). From 1995 to 1999, he was engaged in advanced CMOS read channel development for hard disk drives. In 1999, he co-started the Digital RF Processor (DRP) Group at Texas Instruments with a mission to invent new digitally intensive approaches to traditional RF functions for integrated radios in deeply scaled CMOS technology. He was appointed as a CTO of the DRP Group, Texas Instruments, from 2007 to 2009. In 2009, he joined the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, where currently he holds a guest appointment of Full Professor (Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hoogleraar). Since 2014, he has been a Full Professor with the University College Dublin (UCD), Dublin, Ireland. He is also a Co-Founder of a startup company, Equal1 Labs, with design centers located in Fremont, CA, USA, and Dublin, aiming to produce single-chip CMOS quantum computers. He has authored or coauthored five books, seven book chapters, and 130 journal and 200 conference publications. He holds 200 issued U.S. patents. His research interests include nanoscale CMOS architectures and circuits for frequency synthesizers, transmitters and receivers, and quantum computers. Prof. Staszewski was a recipient of the 2012 IEEE Circuits and Systems Industrial Pioneer Award. In May 2019, he received the title of Professor from the President of the Republic of Poland. He was the TPC Chair of the 2019 European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC), Kraków, Poland.
