Biosketch

Cameron T. Charles received his B.S. in Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo in 2001, followed by his M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Utah in 2003 and his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington in 2006. In 2007 he joined the faculty at the University of Utah as an Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering, where he taught and conducted research in the areas of Analog and RF Integrated Circuit Design. During his time at the University of Utah he was awarded the prestigious CAREER award for promising young investigators from the National Science Foundation. In 2009 he left the University of Utah (retaining an Adjunct faculty position) to return to Seattle, where he re-focused his technical efforts on Embedded Systems and accepted a position in industry with Synapse Product Development. In 2012 he joined UW as an affiliate faculty member to allow him to continue his teaching and research activities on a part-time basis while retaining his primary role at Synapse.
