Catherine Dehollain
Professor
Catherine Dehollain received the degree in electrical engineering in 1982 and the Ph.D. degree in 1995, both from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. From 1982 to 1984, she was a Research Assistant at the Electronics Laboratories (LEG), EPFL. In 1984, she joined the Motorola European Center for Research and Development, Geneva, Switzerland, where she designed integrated circuits applied to telecommunications. In 1990, she joined EPFL as a Senior Assistant at the “Chaire des Circuits et Systemes” (CIRC) where she was involved in impedance broadband matching. Since 1995, she has been responsible at the RFIC Group, EPFL, for RF activities. She has been the technical project manager of the European projects, CTI projects, and the Swiss National Science Foundation projects dedicated to RF wireless micropower sensor networks and mobile phones. Since 1998, she has been a Lecturer at EPFL in the area of RF circuits, electric filters, and CAD tools. Since 2006, she has been a “Maitre d’Enseignement et de Recherche” (MER), EPFL. She is an author or coauthor of four scientific books and 120 scientific publications. Her current research interests include low-power analog circuits, biomedical remotely powered sensors, and electric filters.
