Khalil Najafi is currently the Schlumberger Professor of Engineering in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Michigan. He received the B.S., M.S., and the Ph.D. degree in 1980, 1981, and 1986 respectively, all in Electrical Engineering from the Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. From 1986-1988 he was employed as a Research Fellow, from 1988-1990 as an Assistant Research Scientist, from 1990-1993 as an Assistant Professor, from 1993-1998 as an Associate Professor, and since September 1998 as a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Michigan. He served as the Director of the Solid-State Electronics Laboratory from 1998-2005, has been the director of NSF's National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) since 2004, and has served as the deputy director of the NSF ERC on Wireless Integrated Microsystems (WIMS) at the University of Michigan since 2000. His research interests include: micromachining technologies, micromachined sensors, actuators, and MEMS; analog integrated circuits; implantable biomedical microsystems; micropackaging; and low-power wireless sensing/actuating systems.

Dr. Najafi was awarded a National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award from 1992-1997, and has been active in the field of solid-state sensors and actuators for more than twenty five years. He has been involved in several conferences and workshops dealing with micro sensors, actuators, and microsystems, including the International Conference on Solid-State Sensors and Actuators, the Hilton-Head Solid-State Sensors and Actuators Workshop, and the IEEE/ASME Micro Electromechanical Systems (MEMS) Conference. Dr. Najafi is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Journal of Micro Electromechanical Systems (JMEMS), and the Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, Institute of Physics Publishing, and an editor for the Journal of Sensors and Materials. He also served as the Associate Editor for IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits from 2000-2004, the Editor for Solid-State Sensors for IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices from 1996-2006, and the associate editor for IEEE Trans. Biomedical Engineering from 1999-2000. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and the AIBME.
