Dr. David Monk received his B.S. in ChE from the University of Iowa in 1989, his Ph.D. in ChE with the Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center (BSAC) in 1993 from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MBA from Arizona State University in 1998.Dr. Monk joined Motorola in 1993 and wo rked for the first three years in the Sensor Packaging Technology Center before moving into technical program management for MEMS products. From 2001 through 2005, he managed the sensor R&D for Motorola's Sensor Products Division. After the spinout of Freescale Semiconductor, Dave became the Automotive Sensor Product Manager for the Sensor business unit from 2006-2013. He spent 2012 – 2015 revitalizing the Freescale Sensor R&D role with the installation of a new platform MEMS flow that enables fabrication of a breadth of physical sensors in a single process flow.
Since 2015, Dr. Monk is Vice President and General Manager of the Product Line Motion Sensors at NXP Semiconductors.Dave has been active in the MEMS/MST community by participating in technical committees for the Transducers, Hilton Head, MEMS and IMAPS conferences. He was the Technical/General Program Chair for the Hilton Head 2010/2012 Workshops, respectively. He has published more than 50 conference papers, 10 refereed journal papers, 12 issued patents in the MEMS/MST field, and is an IEEE Senior Member. Dr. Monk is currently the treasurer of the Transducers Research Foundation and a past Governing Council chair for the MEMS & Sensor Industry Group (MSIG), now a part of SEMI.
joined CEA-Leti in 2001 working on sensor systems for smart objects. Her fields of interest are signal processing and machine learning using MEMS, as well as magnetic and physiological sensors, for motion capture, artificial tactile sensing and affective computing. She received her Ph.D. degree in field from Supaero, Toulouse.
is working on new technologies and innovation for Faurecia since 2012. He joined the cockpit of the future team in 2016 where he played a key role to develop many products and technologies for Faurecia. Today Omar is leading the innovation activities for the Cockpit of the future and working as a new technology expert for Faurecia.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
