David Bol

Professor, Electrical Engineering
David Bol is a professor at UCLouvain. He received the Ph.D degree in Engineering Science from UCLouvain in 2008 in the field of ultra-low power digital nanoelectronics. In 2005, he was a visiting Ph.D student at the CNM, Sevilla, Spain, and in 2009, a postdoctoral researcher at intoPIX, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. In 2010, he was a visiting postdoctoral researcher at the UC Berkeley Lab for Manufacturing and Sustainability, Berkeley, CA. In 2015, he participated to the creation of e-peas semiconductors spin-off company, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium.
Prof. Bol leads the Electronic Circuits and Systems (ECS) group focused on ultra-low-power design of integrated circuits for IoT and biomedical applications including computing, power management, sensing and wireless communications. He is actively engaged in a social-ecological transition in the field of ICT.

Prof. Bol has authored or co-authored more than 150 technical papers and conference contributions and holds three delivered patents. He (co-)received three Best Paper/Poster/Design Awards in IEEE conferences (ICCD 2008, SOI Conf. 2008, FTFC 2014). He serves as a reviewer for various journals and conferences such as IEEE J. of Solid-State Circuits, IEEE Trans. on VLSI Syst., IEEE Trans. on Circuits and Syst. I/II. Since 2008, he presented several invited papers and keynote tutorials in international conferences including a forum presentation at IEEE ISSCC 2018.

On the private side, Prof. Bol pioneered the parental leave for male professors in his faculty to spend time connecting to nature with his family.
