Ethan Farquhar received the B.A. degree in natural science in 1999 from Covenant College, Lookout Mountain, GA, USA, the B.S. degree in computer engineering in 1999 from Clemson University, Clemson, SC, USA, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 2003 and 2005, respectively, in electrical engineering from The Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Ga, USA. He is a research engineer in the Monolithic Systems Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. His research has been involved in the design of silicon circuits which model the complex dynamics of mammalian nervous systems on a very large scale. This includes not only traditional neural network circuits, but also the more recently coined neuromorphic circuits. moreover, he is interested in circuits that can learn and predict complex behaviors. Recently, his work has expanded to include very low power implantable biomedical devices and communication systems. He is a Member of the IEEE.
