John Lach

Professor and Chair
Charles L. Brown Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
University of Virginia

I received the B.S. (1996) degree in Science, Technology, and Society from Stanford University and the M.S. (1998) and Ph.D. (2000) degrees in Electrical Engineering from UCLA. Since 2000, I have been a faculty member in the Charles L. Brown Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Virginia and have held the rank of Professor and Department Chair since 2012. I am a Senior Member of the IEEE and am a past Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Computers and the IEEE Transactions on Computer Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems.

My primary research interests are body sensor networks for biomedical and healthcare applications, integrated circuit design techniques, dynamically adaptable and real-time embedded systems, fault and defect tolerance, safety-critical system design and analysis, general-purpose and application-specific processor design, and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). I have been the PI or co-PI on over 30 grants totaling over $9M (over $3.5M directed to my lab) and have published over 100 refereed papers, including three Best Paper Awards. I am currently working with a large group of outstanding graduate and undergraduate student researchers. I am also a founder and co-director of the UVA Center for Wireless Health.
