Rania Mekky

Rania Hassan Mekky received B.Sc. (Distinction with Honors) and M.Sc. degrees from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt, in 2005 and 2009, respectively, and a Ph.D. degree from McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada, in 2016, all in electrical engineering. She is currently a Principal Design Engineer at Cadence Design System, Montreal, QC, Canada, where she is involved in developing high-performance advanced high-speed serial data links and high-speed I/O circuits and architectures in FinFET process technologies. From 2005 to 2008 she worked as an Analog Mixed-Signal Design Engineer at Mentor Graphics (now acquired by Seimens), Cairo, Egypt, where she worked on the design of several systems such as integer-N and fractional-N PLLs for high-speed serial data links, and SerDes transmitters and receivers. From 2008 to 2009, she was with Newport Media Inc. (acquired by Atmel), Cairo, Egypt, where she designed CT-∑∆ ADCs for mobile TV and audio applications. Her research interests include data converter techniques (ADCs, DACs, and TDCs), sensing circuits, low-power mixed-signal circuits, high-speed serial data links, phase-locked loops, frequency synthesizers, and oscillators. Dr. Mekky has published eight technical articles and holds two granted patents. She received the Engineering Class of 1936 Award from McGill University. She serves as a reviewer for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I (TCAS I), the IEEE Canadian Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and for the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS).
