Sohmyung Ha

Professor Sohmyung Ha’s Integrated BioElectronics Laboratory aims at advancing the engineering and applications of silicon integrated technology interfacing with biology. This is approached in a variety of forms, ranging from implantable biomedical devices to unobtrusive wearable sensors.

He received his MS degree in Electrical Engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, Korea. Subsequently he worked as an analog and mixed-signal circuit designer at Samsung Electronics, Yongin, Korea, where he was a part of the engineering team responsible for several of the world best-selling multimedia devices. After an extended career in industry, he returned to academia as a Fulbright Scholar, and obtained the MS and PhD degrees with the best PhD thesis award for biomedical engineering from the Department of Bioengineering, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA, USA, in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

Research Interests: Biomedical circuits, neural interface, wireless power and data telemetry
