Gary K. Fedder is a Professor at Carnegie Mellon University holding a joint appointment with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and The Robotics Institute.
He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in EECS from MIT in 1982 and 1984, respectively.
From 1984 to 1989, he worked at the Hewlett-Packard Company on a VLSI integrated-circuit test system and on modeling of printed-circuit-board interconnect for high-speed computers.
In 1994, he received the Ph.D. degree in EECS from the University of California at Berkeley, where his research resulted in the first demonstration of multimode control of an underdamped surface-micromachined inertial device.
He received the 1993 AIME Electronic Materials Society Ross Tucker Award, the1996 Carnegie Institute of Technology G. T. Ladd Award, and the 1996 NSF CARRER Award.
Currently, he serves as a subject editor for the IEEE/ASME Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, on the editorial board of the IoP Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, and as co-editor of the Wiley-VCH Sensors Update and Advanced Micro- and Nanosystems book series.
He served as general co-chair of the 2005 IEEE MEMS Conference. He has contributed to over 100 research publications and several patents in the MEMS area.
His research interests include microsensor and microactuator design and modeling, integrated MEMS manufactured in CMOS processes and structured design methodologies for MEMS.
