Bodhisatwa Sadhu is currently a Research Staff Member at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, NY. He received his B.E.(Hons.) degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Birla Institute of Technology and Science - Pilani (BITS-Pilani), in 2007 and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, in 2012. For his Ph.D., he worked on wideband circuits and architectures for cognitive radio applications.

In 2007, he was with Broadcom Corporation, Bangalore, where he worked on system integration and verification of ethernet switch SoCs. In Fall-2010 and Summer-2011, he was with the Mixed Signal Communications IC Design Group, IBM T.J. Watson Research Center where he worked on the analysis and design of low phase noise frequency synthesizers for 60GHz and 94GHz applications. Since 2012, Dr. Sadhu has been working on mm-wave transceivers in the RF/mm-wave Communications Circuits group at IBM Research where he has led the design and demonstration of a self-healing frequency synthesizer, a low power 60GHz transceiver IC, and a mm-wave 5G phased array base-station IC.

In the last five years, he has authored and co-authored 10+ journal papers, 20+ conference papers, and holds 20 issued US patents with 20+ pending. His paper describing a new approach to low phase noise LC VCO design based on transconductance linearization was the most downloaded paper in IEEE Journal of Solid State Circuits in 2013. He has authored the book, Cognitive Radio Receiver Front-Ends - RF/Analog Circuit Techniques (Springer, 2013) and has authored/co-authored several book chapters. 

Dr. Sadhu is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia University, NY, serves as a member of the TPC of IEEE RFIC Symposium and IEEE BCICTS, and is a guest editor of IEEE JSSC.

Dr. Sadhu is the recipient of the ISSCC Lewis Winner Award for Outstanding Paper in 2018, two IBM A-level Accomplishment awards, six IBM Patent Plateau awards, the University of Minnesota Graduate School Fellowship, 2007, 3M Science and Technology Fellowship, 2009 and the University of Minnesota Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship, 2011. He stood 2nd in India in the Indian School Certificate examination (national high school finals), and was silver medalist in BITS-Pilani (second among 1000+ students in his class).
