Wireless Integrated MicroSystems (WIMS): Coming Revolution in the Gathering of Information

Kensall D. Wise

Kensall D. Wise

J. Reid and Polly Anderson Professor of Manufacturing Technology
Director of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Wireless Integrated MicroSystems
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA

Kensall D. Wise received the BSEE degree with highest distinction from Purdue University in 1963 and the MS and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1964 and 1969, respectively. From 1963 to 1965 (on leave 1965-1969) and from 1972 to 1974, he was a Member of Technical Staff at Bell Telephone Laboratories, where his work was concerned with the exploratory development of integrated electronics for use in telephone communications. From 1965 to 1972 he was a Research Assistant and then a Research Associate and Lecturer in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford, working on the development of integrated circuit technology and its application to solid-state sensors. In 1974 he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where he is now the J. Reid and Polly Anderson Professor of Manufacturing Technology and Director of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Wireless Integrated MicroSystems. His present research interests focus on the development of integrated microsystems for health care, process control, and environmental monitoring.

Dr. Wise organized and served as the first chairman of the Technical Subcommittee on Solid-State Sensors of the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS). He was General Chairman of the 1984 IEEE Solid-State Sensor Conference, Technical Program Chairman of the IEEE International Conference on Solid-State Sensors and Actuators (1985), and IEEE-EDS National Lecturer (1986). He served as General Chairman of the 1997 IEEE International Conference on Solid-State Sensors and Actuators. Dr. Wise received the Paul Rappaport Award from the EDS (1990), a Distinguished Faculty Achievement Award from the University of Michigan (1995), the Columbus Prize from the Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation (1996), the SRC Aristotle Award (1997), and the 1999 IEEE Solid-State Circuits Field Award. In 2002 he was named the William Gould Dow Distinguished University Professor at the University of Michigan. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and a member of the United States National Academy of Engineering.

Speaking in the Sensors and Systems Symposium.
