Dietmar Kissinger was born in Leipzig, Germany, in 1980. He received the Dipl.-Ing. degree and the Dr.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen, Germany, in 2007 and 2011, respectively.
In 2007, he joined the Institute for Electronics Engineering, Erlangen, Germany as a Research Assistant. From 2007 to 2010, he was with Danube Integrated Circuit Engineering, Linz, Austria, where he worked as a System and Application Engineer in the automotive radar group. Since 2010, he holds a position as Lecturer and Head of the RF Integrated Sensors Group at the Institute for Electronics Engineering. His research interests include silicon-based microwave and millimeter-wave integrated circuits as well as wireless sensors and communication systems for ultra-low power, automotive, industrial, security, and medical applications. In these areas he has authored or co-authored more than 50 technical publications and holds 3 patents.
Dr. Kissinger is a member of IEEE MTT-S and SSCS, the European Microwave Association (EuMA) and the German Information Technology Society (ITG) and Society of Microelectronics, Microsystems and Precision Engineering (VDE/VDI GMM). He also serves as a member of the MTT-S Technical Coordinating Committees Microwave and Millimeter Wave Integrated Circuits (MTT-6) and Biological Effects and Medical Applications (MTT-10). He is an Executive Committee member of the IEEE Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems (SiRF) and Steering Committee member of the IEEE Radio Wireless Symposium (RWS) and International Semiconductor Conference Dresden – Grenoble (ISCDG). His review work includes the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters, and IEEE Microwave Magazine Editorial Board, IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS), European Microwave Integrated Circuits Conference (EuMIC) and IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS) Technical Paper Review Committee as well as a number of additional review committees. He was a 2011 and 2012 Co-Chair of the IEEE Topical Conference on Wireless Sensors and Sensor Networks (WiSNet) and will be a 2013 and 2014 Co-Chair of the IEEE Topical Conference on Biomedical Wireless Technologies, Networks and Sensing Systems (BioWireless) and 2013 Publication Chair of the European Microwave Week (EuMW). He was a Guest Editor for the IEEE Microwave Magazine (2012) and currently serves as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques.
