Mark Ferriss received a first class honors BE degree in Electrical Engineering from University College Cork, Ireland, in 1998 and a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 2008. From 1998 to 2002 Mark worked for Analog Devices in Limerick, Ireland, during which time he worked on a variety of projects including Digital-to-Analog converters, switches, controllers and phase-locked loops for fiber optic communications. In 2009 Mark jointed the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY.
His present research interests include self healing RF communication circuits, and analog to digital interface circuits. Specific interests include developing digital techniques for the implementation of traditional analog systems such as phase-locked loops.
