Keysight Technologies Announces Recipient of its 2017 Keysight Early Career Professor Award


Dr. Rikky Muller recognized for work on wireless interfaces to the brain and body at University of California, Berkeley

SANTA ROSA, Calif., May 8, 2017

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced that Rikky Muller, Ph.D., professor at University of California, Berkeley in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department, is the recipient of the 2017 Keysight Early Career Professor Award for her work in advanced integrated circuits for implantable and wearable medical devices.

Muller's research focuses on developing integrated systems containing precision instrumentation electronics that directly interface with the human body and brain. These minimally invasive systems with wireless interfaces measure, monitor, and treat the host organism. Studies using these systems will improve understanding of the brain and point the way toward improved treatment strategies.

Muller is an assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science at UC Berkeley. She is a co-founder of Cortera Neurotechnologies, Inc., and was named in 2015 as one of the top 35 global innovators under the age of 35 by the MIT Technology Review.

"Dr. Muller's work on ultra-low power, minimally invasive implantable wireless systems lays the foundation for improved understanding of, and interaction with, the brain," said Kent Carey, director of university relations at Keysight. "Applications from remote monitoring to treatment can be built on this technology."

"I am delighted to see Rikky Muller's innovative research acknowledged by this prestigious recognition from Keysight Technologies," said S. Shankar Sastry, dean of the College of Engineering at UC Berkeley. "Dr. Muller exemplifies the collaborative, entrepreneurial approach we take to solving big problems in human health and other domains. Her work in neuro-engineering holds promise for quadriplegics, PTSD sufferers and others with neural disorders."

The Keysight Early Career Professor Award is established to recognize and encourage excellent research enabling design, test or measurement of electronic systems. The program seeks to establish strong collaborative relationships between Keysight researchers and leading professors early in their careers and to highlight Keysight's role as a sponsor of university research.
