Dr. André Ivanov

Dr. André Ivanov is Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, at the University of British Columbia. Prior to joining UBC in 1989, he received his B.Eng. (Hon.), M. Eng., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from McGill University. In 199596, he spent a sabbatical leave at PMCSierra, Vancouver, BC. He has held invited Professor positions at the University of Montpellier II, the University of Bordeaux I, and Edith Cowan University, in Perth, Australia.

His primary research interests lie in the area of integrated circuit testing, design for testability and builtin selftest, for digital, analog and mixed signal circuits, and systems on a chip (SoCs). He has published widely in these areas and holds several patents in IC design and test. Besides testing, Ivanov has interests in the design and design methodologies of large and complex integrated circuits and SoCs. Ivanov has served and continues to serve on numerous national and international steering, program, and/or organization committees in various capacities. Recently, he was the Program Chair of the 2002 VLSI Test Symposium (VTS 02) and the General Chair for VTS 03 and VTS 04. In 2004, Ivanov founded and cochaired the 1st IEEE International GHz/Gbps Test Workshop and cochaired the same event in 2005. In 2001, Ivanov cofounded Vector 12, a semiconductor IP company. He has published over 150 papers in conference and journals and holds 4 US patents.

Ivanov serves as Associated Editor for the IEEE Transactions on ComputerAided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems, the IEEE Design and Test Magazine, and Kluwer's Journal of Electronic Testing: Theory and Applications. Ivanov has been guest editor of several special issues of these journals in the recent past. Ivanov is currently the Chair of the IEEE Computer Society's Test Technology Technical Council (TTTC) and currently serves on the IEEE Computer Society Conference and Tutorials Board.

He is a Golden Core Member of the IEEE Computer Society, a Fellow of the IEEE, a Fellow of the British Columbia Advanced Systems Institute and a Professional Engineer of British Columbia.
