Paul Leroux was born in Eeklo, Belgium, in 1975. He obtained the M.S. degree in electronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree in engineering from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, in 1999 and 2004, respectively. Since 2004, he serves as a Professor at the K. H. Kempen University College, where he teaches courses on semiconductor components, analog electronics, analog filter design, CMOS IC design, RF and microwave design, and phase-locked loops at the Industrial Engineering Department. He is a Founding Member of the IBW-RELIC group at the K. H. Kempen. Since 2009 he is also associated professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering. He has vast expertise in RF, analog, and optoelectronic circuit design. He has also been active in the design of radiation tolerant integrated circuits for harsh nuclear environments like the ITER fusion reactor and the accelerator-driven MYRRHA reactor in collaboration with SCK-CEN, the Belgian Nuclear Research Center. His current activities focus on radiation tolerant IC design, high-accuracy time-to-digital conversion, the design of optoelectronic transmitter and receiver front-ends for optical fiber communication and optical wireless instrumentation (LIDAR), indoor RADAR and UWB imaging systems for biomedical applications. He has (co)authored over 60 peer reviewed papers in international journals or conference proceedings. He holds several memberships and won many awards.
