Dr. Hooman Reyhani

Hooman Reyhani graduated with a B.Eng. (1st Class Hons) in Electronic Engineering from the University of Limerick in 1989. He completed his M.Eng. and Ph.D. at the University of Limerick in 1998 and 2001 respectively. He joined Analog Devices, Limerick, Ireland in 1989 as a Design Engineer and was involved in the design and development of several high-speed mixed-signal IC's, A/D and D/A converters, primarily for the Disk Drive and Telecommunication applications. In 1996 he joined Parthus Technologies, Limerick, Ireland, as a Principal Engineer. From 2001 onwards he has been working as an analog design consultant for companies in Ireland, UK, Holland & Spain. Since 2014 he joined CSRC as a visiting research consultant for his expertise in high-performance data converter design.

Dr. Reyhani has authored and co-authored several publications in international journals and conference proceedings. He also holds two U.S. patents in the area of high-speed A/D converters.
