Paul R. Gray
The executive vice chancellor and provost at the University of California at Berkeley (UC Berkeley), Dr. Paul R. Gray has equipped a generation of integrated circuit designers to excel in industry and academia. His students have won numerous prizes, including four Best Paper Awards at the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference and IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems and IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits Best Paper Awards.
Since joining UC Berkeley's department of electrical engineering and computer sciences (EECS) in 1971, Dr. Gray has held a number of administrative posts, including department chairman from 1990 to 1993 and dean of engineering from 1996 to 2000. He helped redesign the EECS undergraduate curriculum, established a department of bioengineering and championed interdisciplinary initiatives in health science and nanotechnology.
Dr. Gray is the co-author of the widely used 1977 textbook 'Analysis and Design of Analog Integrated Circuits.' Expanded in successive editions, it remains the standard reference work for the field. He has co-edited two other texts, contributed to more than 130 papers and holds 13 U.S. patents.
An IEEE Fellow and member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, Dr. Gray has served as editor of the IEEE Journal of Solid State Circuits and as president of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Council (now the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society). He is a past member of the Engineering Dean's Council of the American Society for Engineering Education, and has received numerous awards including the IEEE W.R.G. Baker Prize Paper Award and the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Award.
