    David Burnett, PhD Advisor

    David has been designing wireless sensor systems for nearly two decades, specializing in integrated circuits since his PhD in EECS from UC Berkeley. During his PhD he pioneered a fully integrated wireless sensor mote requiring only a battery and antenna to form an independent sensor system including integration with a harmful gas sensor. Prior to his PhD he focused on PCB-based sensor system design for oceanographic applications. He earned a BS and MS in EE from University of Washington, designed and fielded coastal sensor systems at Sandia National Labs, served as electrical engineer and pilot for underwater robots deployed to Antarctica, designed wearable health monitors, and taught embedded systems. David is a former consultant at Exponent Inc. where he advised a variety of technology and legal clients on the design and failure modes of integrated circuits, consumer and industrial electronics, and medical devices. David serves as an advisor to Think Circuits and is a tenure-track ECE faculty member at Portland State University where he teaches and directs the WEST research group in the areas of integrated circuits and wireless environmental sensor systems.
