The Circuit Frontier: Innovating and Expanding ASIC Solutions for Enhanced Biosensing and Seamless Wireless Communication

The BU Wireless Integrated Systems and Extreme Circuits (WISE-Circuits) group blends secure integrated circuits with energy-constrained applications to pioneer breakthroughs in information theory, bioengineering, and communications. Our research focuses on the development of Cyber-Secure Biological Systems, leveraging living sensors constructed from engineered biological entities seamlessly integrated with solid-state circuits. This unique synergy harnesses the advantages of biology while incorporating the reliability and communication infrastructure of electronics, offering a unique solution to societal challenges in healthcare and environmental monitoring.

Additionally, our research extends to the realm of all-in-one data decoders, where we employ novel cross-layer techniques spanning algorithms to low-power integrated circuits. This innovative decoding approach facilitates ultra-low-energy wireless communications, a critical requirement for the success of these systems and numerous other applications. In this seminar, I will delve into the intricacies of our interdisciplinary approach and the longer-term vision of the WISE-Circuits research, spotlighting the potential of energy-efficient integrated circuits in the domains of biosensing and wireless communications. These collaborative research projects involve MIT BE/MechE, BU ECE/BME, and MIT RLE-Northeastern University.

Bio: Rabia Yazicigil is an Assistant Professor of ECE Department at Boston University, a Visiting Scholar at MIT, and a Network Faculty at Sabanci University. She was a Postdoctoral Associate at MIT and received her Ph.D. degree from Columbia University in 2016.
