Circuits and Communications Systems



Patricia Desgreys received the Agregation degree in Applied Physics from Ecole Normale Superieure of Cachan, the M.Sc. degree and Ph.D. in Microelectronics from the University of Bordeaux in 1995, 1996 and 1999 respectively. Since 2000, she has been with Institute Mines Telecom-TELECOM Paris where she is currently full professor heading the Circuit and Communication Systems (C2S) research team at the LTCI Laboratory. She is in charge of research on Wireless Systems and Design Techniques for Nanoscale Circuits with special emphasis on Cognitive Radio Systems & Smart AMS Systems for IoT & Cyber-Physical Systems. So far, she has co-authored more than 140 technical publications mainly on international journals and conference proceedings and has been involved in many collaborative projects. Since 2007, she is a member of the steering committee of French research network GdR SOC2 in charge of animating the community of 600 French researchers in SoC design for embedded systems and connected objects. She is involved in the international animation of the CAS community, in particular President of IEEE-CAS France since 2015, member of IEEE NEWCAS steering committee since 2011, Technical Program Chair (TPC) of IEEE NEWCAS in 2012 & 2013 and TPC of IEEE ICECS on 2016. She was Guest Editor of Special Issues in Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing in 2013 & 2014 and of the ISICAS special issue in IEEE TCASII journal in 2018.

Her research interests involve AMS circuit design from transistor to architectural level, techniques for software and cognitive radio, AMS modeling and simulation. Her present research activity is focused on:

She is author or co-author of about 140 papers on international journals (31) and international conferences (66) mostly IEEE and national publications. Six of them have a great number of citations (more than 20). She is also co-editor and co-author of the book Digitally Enhanced Mixed Signal Systems, IET The Institution of Engineering and Technology. She has already graduated several postgraduate students (13 PhD students).

She has been involved in many collaborative projects with significant contributions in the European project CATRENE PANAMA (Power Amplifiers and Antennas for Mobile Applications) leading to journal publications and patent.

Since 2001, she has been teaching several courses on Analog and Mixed Signal (AMS) Functions, Radiofrequency Electronics and Microelectronics at Telecom Paris, and in the post-graduate Master degree Science and Technology of Paris VI. She has also given several training seminars in several universities. Since 2015, every year, she teach a course on Advanced Electronics & Signal Processing at SJTU-ParisTech Elite Institute of Technology in Shanghai. Currently, she is co-leading the Integration Circuits Systems (ICS) master program of University Paris Saclay in collaboration with Univ. Paris XI & Centrale-Supelec.
