Farooq Amin received his B.S. degree in computer engineering from COMSATS IIT, Pakistan, in 2005. He received his M.S. degree in electrical engineering with specialization in system-on-chip from Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden in 2009 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, VA, USA in 2017.
From 2011 to 2013, he was with the CPU design group at Intel Corp. Hillsboro, OR, USA as a Design Engineer working on Intel Hasewell and Broadwell family of microprocessors design. He is currently working for Northrop Grumman Corp. USA as a RFIC Design Engineer. His research interests include RF and mm-wave circuits, analog X-ray read-out circuits and systems, and low-power high speed custom datapath design.
Dr. Amin was the recipient of the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium Best Student Paper Award (First Place) in 2016. He is also the recipient of Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) Graduate Fellowship for the years 2015–2017.
Sanjay Raman was born in Nottingham, U.K., on April 25, 1966. He received the B.S. degree (with highest honor) from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, in 1987, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from The University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, in 1993 and 1998, respectively, all in electrical engineering. From 1987 to 1992, he was a Nuclear Trained Submarine Officer with the US Navy. In January 1998, he joined the faculty of the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, where he is currently a Professor. He is also currently serving as Associate Vice President, Virginia Tech National Capital Region, where he is responsible for planning and executing region-wide initiatives to enhance the university's research, education, and outreach missions. He is also a founding member of the VT Multifunctional Integrated Circuits and Systems (MICS) research group. His research interests include RF/microwave/millimeter-wave integrated circuits and antennas, high-speed/mixed-signal ICs, interconnects and packaging, RF microelectromechanical/nanoelectromechanical (MEMS/NEMS) devices, and integrated wireless communications and sensor microsystems.

In 2013 he was awarded the Secretary of Defense Medal for Exceptional Public Service for his service at DARPA.
Kwang-Jin Koh received his Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of California, San Diego in 2008. For his doctoral study, Dr. Koh developed X-band and Q-band silicon phased arrays which were reported to the US DoD by the DARPA as one of the agency's major achievements in 2007–2008 and successfully found their ways into the active protection systems of the US aerospace and defense companies.
After several years stint in the semiconductor industry as an engineering researcher at the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI, Korea) from 2000 to 2004, as a senior engineer at Intel Corp. from 2008 to 2010, and as a senior staff scientist at Broadcom Corp. from 2010 to 2011, he joined in the Virginia Tech ECE Department as an assistant professor and started teaching from the 2012 Spring semester. Dr. Koh's research interests include low-power and power-efficient integrated circuits and systems up to millimeter-wave frequencies.
Dr. Koh and his students received the first place best student paper award in the 2016 IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) and the second place best student paper award in the 2015 IMS. Dr. Koh was also nominated for the R.W.P. King best paper award from the IEEE Antenna and Propagation Society in 2015. Dr. Koh was the recipient of a best paper award of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits and Electron Device Societies, Seoul Chapter in 2002. He and his Ph.D. student also received the 2015–2017 NASA Virginia Space Grant Consortium STEM research fellowship. Dr. Koh received the 2014 Outstanding Assistant Professor Award and the 2012 Junior Faculty Research Award from the College of Engineering, Virginia Tech, and the 2010 Team of the Year Award from Teledyne Technology Inc. (formerly, Teledyne Scientific Corp.). Dr. Koh has been serving as a technical program committee member of the IEEE Bipolar/BiCMOS Circuits and Technology Meeting and IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference.
