Bodhisatwa Sadhu received the B.E. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Birla Institute of Technology and Science - Pilani (BITS-Pilani), India in 2007, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, in 2012.
He is currently a Senior Research Scientist with the RF/mm-wave Communication Circuits & Systems Group at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY, USA, and was an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia University, NY from 2017 to 2020. At IBM, he has led the design and demonstration of the world’s first reported silicon-based 5G phased array IC, a low power 60-GHz CMOS transceiver IC for 802.11ad communications, a 256-element 5G phased array IC and module, a software-defined phased array radio, and several low phase noise frequency synthesizers. He has authored and coauthored more than 60 peer-reviewed papers, the book Cognitive Radio Receiver Front-Ends (Springer, 2014), and several book chapters. He also holds more than 70 issued U.S. patents. Dr. Sadhu currently serves as an IEEE MTT-S Distinguished Microwave Lecturer, Sub-Committee Chair and Steering Committee Member for IEEE RFIC Symposium, TPC member for IEEE ISSCC, and has served as a Guest Editor of IEEE JSSC in 2017 and IEEE T-MTT in 2021.
Dr. Sadhu is the recipient of the 2022 IEEE MTT-S Outstanding Young Engineer Award, 2017 ISSCC Lewis Winner Award for Outstanding Paper (best paper award), the 2017 JSSC Best Paper Award, the 2017 Pat Goldberg Memorial Award for the best paper in computer science, electrical engineering, and mathematics published by IBM Research, and five IBM Outstanding Technical Achievement Awards. He stood 2nd in India in the Indian School Certificate (ISC) examination in 2003 and won the BITS Pilani Silver Medal (2nd in class of more than 1000 students) in 2007. He was recognized as an IBM Master Inventor in 2017 and 2021 (three-year terms), and was selected by the National Academy of Engineering for its Frontiers of Engineering Symposium in 2020.
