Jon Proesel received the B.S. degree in computer engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2004. He received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, in 2008 and 2010, respectively. In his doctoral dissertation, he demonstrated the use of combinatorial redundancy and statistical element selection to reduce random offsets in analog-to-digital converters.
He is currently a research staff member at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY, where he leads analog and mixed-signal circuit design for optics and silicon photonics. Prior to this, he was a postdoctoral researcher with the Silicon Nanophotonics group from 2010 to 2012. He has also held summer internship positions with IBM Microelectronics, Essex Junction, VT, in 2004 and IBM Research, Yorktown Heights, NY, in 2009. His research interests include high-speed communications, data converters, optics, and silicon photonics.
Dr. Proesel is a member of the IEEE and the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. He is the recipient or co-recipient of the Analog Devices Outstanding Student Designer Award in 2008, the SRC Techcon Best in Session Award for Analog Circuits in 2009, the Best Student Paper Award for the 2010 IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference, and the IBM Eminence and Excellence Award in 2013.
