Kaushik Sengupta (M’12) received the B.Tech. and M.Tech. degrees in electronics and electrical communication engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, India, both in 2007, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, USA, in 2008 and 2012, respectively. In February 2013, he joined the faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ. During his undergraduate studies, he performed research at the University of Southern California, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in the summers of 2005 and 2006, where he was involved with nonlinear integrated systems for high-purity signal generation and low-power RF identification (RFID) tags, respectively. His research interests are in the areas of high-frequency ICs, electromagnetics, optics for various applications in sensing, imaging and high-speed communication.
Dr. Sengupta was the recipient of the IBM Ph.D. fellowship (2011–2012), the IEEE Solid State Circuits Society Predoctoral Achievement Award, the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Graduate Fellowship, and the Analog Devices Outstanding Student Designer Award (2011). He was also the recipient of the Prime Minister Gold Medal Award of IIT (2007), the Caltech Institute Fellowship, the Most Innovative Student Project Award of the Indian National Academy of Engineering (2007), and the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Undergraduate Fellowship (2006). He was the corecipient of IEEE RFIC Symposium Best Student Paper Award in 2012.
