Dr. Bo Pan,
Doctorate Alumn

Background

Bo Pan grew up in Gan su, China. He received Bachelor’s degree (with honor) and Master’s degree (with honor) both in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, respectively in July 2000 and January 2003. After getting a Master’s degree, he worked in Wireless and Networking group of Microsoft Research Asia as a visiting student. Since the autumn of 2003, he joined the Ph.D. program at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
In Georgia Tech, He was a research assistant of both the MiRCTECH Group led by Prof. John Papapolymerou and the A.T.H.E.N.A. Group leb by Prof. Manos Tentzeris. He was also associated with the Georgia Electronic Design Center. Mr. Pan focused on the design, fabrication and characterization of integration of novel millimeter wave passive components for next generation wireless transceiver front-end using surface micromachining approach, including antennas, coupler, resonators and filters. His previous research for the Master thesis was to design broadband receiver front-end amplifier and driver amplifier for external modulator in fiber-optic transceiver.
His research interests include microwave integrated circuits, especially the design of novel passive and active components. He is also interested in numerical electromagnetics.
