Dr. Laurent Fesquet

Dr. Laurent Fesquet (IEEE M’99, S’09), received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Paul Sabatier University, Toulouse, France, in 1997. In 1995, he was a Lecturer in charge of electronics and inertial navigation systems with the French Navy Instruction Center. In 1999, he joined the Grenoble Institute of Technology, Grenoble, France, as an Associate Professor. Since 2008, he has been Deputy Director of CIME Nanotech, an academic center that supports microelectronic teaching and research activities. His research, initially focused on asynchronous circuit design, has been extended in 2000 to non-uniform sampling techniques in order to enhance the analog-to-digital conversion. Since, he has been general chair in 2009 and program chair in 2011 and 2013 of the Sampling Theory and applications conference (SampTA). He has also been the program chair of the two first editions of the Event-based Control, Communication and Signal Processing conference (EBCCSP). His current research at the TIMA Laboratory today covers asynchronous circuit design, computer-aided design (CAD) for event-based systems and non-uniform signal processing. He is currently an invited professor at EPFL in Switzerland.
