Dr. James Wilson
Dr. James Wilson joined DARPA in July 2020 as a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office (MTO). His research interests include the development of radio frequency (RF), analog, and digital circuits that push the power and performance envelope; novel topologies enabled through heterogeneous integration; the applications of electronics to enable new RF, EW, and communication opportunities; and hardware security. He is particularly interested in increasing the energy efficiency of electronics to enable ubiquitous, high-performance systems for wideband electromagnetic spectrum operations.
Prior to joining DARPA, Wilson was a team leader of the Silicon Design Team at the Army Research Laboratory (ARL). In this role he led technology and program development in the area of microsystem technology, which spans analog, RF, and digital circuit and system design for a wide variety of applications, including communications, radar, electronic support, and remote sensing. In his first six years at ARL as an electronics engineer, he developed digital-to-analog converters and Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) frontends using advanced CMOS and heterogeneous technologies.
Wilson holds a Bachelor's, Master's, and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Ohio State University, and has published more than 20 papers. He is a senior member of the IEEE, and, for five years, served on the technical program committee of the RFIC Symposium. He also served on the steering committee of the GOMACTech Conference since 2012, and was the general chair for the conference in 2016.
