Bradley A. Minch
Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Prior to joining the Olin College faculty, Dr. Minch was an Assistant Professor at Cornell University in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, where he was the recipient of three teaching awards and one freshman advising award. In 2000, he received an Early CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation. The award recognizes the early career-development activities of teacher-scholars who are most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century, and is very prestigious. Dr. Minch's research interests are in the areas of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuit design. Translinear circuits, log-domain filters, floating-gate circuits, and neuromorphic circuits are among the topics covered in his published journal papers and conference presentations. Dr. Minch received his Ph.D. in 1997 from the Computation and Neural Systems program at the California Institute of Technology. In 1991, he received his B.S. in electrical engineering from Cornell University. His outside interests include origami, stained glass and electronics. He is an analog circuit designer who believes that there are still plenty of little circuits waiting to be discovered and that a circuit can be an end in itself and a thing of beauty. He is also the father of two beautiful boys, Jadyn and Allen, who both have bright red hair and a seemingly unfathomable amount of energy.
