Dr. Floyd is the Alton and Mildred Lancaster Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at NC State University. He leads a research program in the areas of RF and millimeter-wave circuits and systems, organized as the iNtegrated Circuits and Systems lab at NC State (iNcs2 [rhymes with “NCSU”]). He also teaches graduate classes in analog, radio-frequency (RF), and millimeter-wave integrated circuit design. See more info on his bio here.
His research interests lie in the general areas of RF and millimeter-wave (mmWave) circuits and systems for wireless communications, imaging, and radar applications. Specific research topics include multi-Gb/s silicon phased-array transceivers, N-path filtering techniques, heterogeneous integration, digital beamforming, extreme wideband wireless architectures, mmWave imagers, low-cost radar, multi-function RF arrays, wireless technology for UAVs, and test and calibration of phased arrays.
iNcs2 is recruiting new Ph.D. students for 2024. In your application, please emphasize any prior experience in integrated circuits or electronics as well as your reasons for wanting to pursue a doctoral degree. Strong applicants would demonstrate familiarity with the iNcs2 group’s recent publications and ideas on how to advance beyond these into new research projects. Include “iNcs2 application for 2024” in your message subject.
