Short Bio

Boris Murmann (鲍瑞思) is a Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. He joined Stanford in 2004 after completing his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering at the University of California, Berkeley in 2003. From 1994 to 1997, he was with Neutron Microelectronics, Germany, where he developed low-power and smart-power ASICs. Since 2004, he has worked as a consultant with numerous Silicon Valley companies. Dr. Murmann’s research interests are in mixed-signal integrated circuit design, including sensor interfaces, data conversion, high-speed communication, and embedded machine learning. He was a co-recipient of the Best Student Paper Award at the 2008 and 2021 VLSI Circuits Symposia, as well as a recipient of the Best Invited Paper Award at the 2008 IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC). He received the 2009 Agilent Early Career Professor Award, the 2012 Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award by the Humboldt Foundation, and the 2021 SIA-SRC University Researcher Award for lifetime research contributions to the U.S. semiconductor industry. He has served as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, an AdCom member and Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS), the Data Converter Subcommittee Chair and Technical Program Chair of the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), as well as the Technical Program Co-Chair of the tinyML Research Symposium. He currently serves as the chair of the IEEE SSCS Technical Committee on Open-Source Ecosystem and the General Co-Chair of the 2023 IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS). He is a Fellow of the IEEE.


Prospective students

I receive a large number of emails from prospective students asking me to evaluate their resumes and inquiring and about research assistantships in my group. Please do not be disappointed if I do not respond or respond only with a short email; I simply do not have the bandwidth to run my own admissions office. If you are interested in joining my group, your first step is to apply to our PhD program. I can then evaluate your folder during admissions season and see how you rank against the other applicants that are interested in joining my group. I tend to take on only 1-2 new students each year, and so I need to be selective and defer my evaluations and decisions until I see the entire pool of applicants in December/January. Thanks for your interest!
