Jeronimo Segovia Fernandez teaches EE C247B during Spring 2023. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2015, and previously received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Industrial Engineering with a minor in Electronics from University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain) in 2008. He currently works as an R&D Systems Engineer at Texas Instruments Kilby Labs where he was elevated to Member, Group Technical Staff (MGTS) in 2022. His main research focus has been on piezoelectric MEMS integrated with analog and RF circuits for applications related to wireless communication, timing, sensing, and power electronics.

Dr. Segovia-Fernandez has authored and co-authored more than 50 publications in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings, and holds 6 patents and 10 patent applications. He received the IEEE Sensors Council Technical Achievement Award and the IEEE SCV Outstanding Engineer Award in 2023, the SRC Mahboob Khan Outstanding Industry Liaison Award in 2022, the IFCS Best Student Paper Award in 2013, and 2 of his peer-reviewed journal papers were selected as the top-10% JMEMS RightNow Papers. He is a Technical Reviewer for several IEEE (JMEMS, TUFFC, TED, APL, Sensors Journal) and MDPI (Electronics, Sensors) journals and a TPC member for 2 international conferences (IFCS and Transducers), and volunteers at the IEEE San Francisco-Bay Area (SFBA) MEMS and Sensors Chapter (as Chair) and the IEEE MEMS Technical Community (as Media VP).
