Dr. Jack Judy is a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), he is serving in this capacity while on leave from his faculty position as an Associate Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department and Biomedical Engineering Interdepartmental Program at the University of California, Los Angeles. He received the B.S.E.E. degree with summa cum laude honors from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, in 1989, and an M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1994 and 1996, respectively. His doctoral research concentrated on the merger of thin-film magnetic-recording head fabrication techniques and technologies with those used in the IC industry, to produce novel ferromagnetic MEMS devices with silicon-based flexures.
Dr. Judy worked for Silicon Light Machines, Inc., Sunnyvale, California, a startup company commercializing a MEMS-based optical-projection system for digital-display applications, from 1996 to 1997. He joined the faculty of the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1997. While at UCLA, he served as Director of the NeuroEngineering Program, the Nanoelectronics Research Facility, and the Microfabrication Laboratory. Dr. Judy received the prestigious National Science Foundation Career Award and the Okawa Foundation Award in 1999 and 2002, respectively.
Dr. Judy is presently interested in the following fields: * Reliable High-Performance Neural Interfaces * High-Density Energy-Conversion Microsystems * High-Performance Mesoscale Actuators * Miniature High-Performance Power Converters
