Farid Boussaid received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, both in microelectronics, from the National Institute of Applied Science (INSA), Toulouse, France, in 1996 and 1999, respectively. From May 1999 to February 2000, he served as a Research Associate within the Microsystems and Microstructures Research Group, French National Centre for Scientific Research (LAAS-CNRS), Toulouse, France. In March 2000, he joined Edith Cowan University, Perth, WA, Australia, as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and a Member of the Visual Information Processing Research Group. In December 2001, he was the recipient of an Australian Research Council APD Fellowship to develop a new generation of smart vision sensors featuring on-chip and pixel-level implementation of human vision-based algorithms. In January 2005, he joined the University of Western Australia, where he currently works as an Associate Professor. His research interests include low power integrated circuit design, smart CMOS vision sensors, gas sensors, neuromorphic systems, device simulation, modeling, and characterization in deep submicron CMOS processes. Dr. Boussaid was the recipient of the 2004 IEEE Chester Sall Award and the Best Paper Award at the 2005 IEEE International Workshop on System-On-Chip for Real-Time Applications.
