Bevan Baas received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1990 and 1999 respectively. He worked at Hewlett Packard's Computer Systems Division, was the second full-time employee after the founders at Atheros Communications, and in 2003, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Davis as an Assistant Professor. He is now an Associate Professor.
Dr. Baas' research interests are in the algorithms, applications, architectures, arithmetic, circuits, and VLSI design for high-performance, energy-efficient, and area-efficient computation with strong consideration of the challenges and opportunities of future fabrication technologies.
He was an NSF Fellow and a NASA GSR Fellow. He received an NSF CAREEER Award, the Best Paper Award at ICCD 2011 and several Best Paper Nominations, AISES Most Promising Engineer/Scientist Award, and supervised the research that earned the College of Engineering Best Doctoral Dissertation Honorable Mention. He served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, co-chaired several conferences, served on many conference committees, and served as Guest Editor for several publications.
