Prof. Abidi received his BSc degree in Electrical Engineering from Imperial College, London, in 1976, and his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1982. He worked at Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill until 1985, and then joined the faculty of the University of California, Los Angeles, where he is Distinguished Chancellor’s Professor of Electrical Engineering. With his students, he has developed many of the radio circuits and architectures that enable today’s mobile devices. Among other awards, Prof. Abidi received the 2008 IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award in Solid-State Circuits and the Best Paper Award from the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits in 2012. The University of California, Berkeley’s Department of EECS recognised him as a Distinguished Alumnus in 2015.
