Dr. Petersen first established a MEMS research group in 1975 while at IBM Research. He co-founded four MEMS technology companies – Transensory Devices, Inc., NovaSensor, Cepheid and SiTime - during his career, which has seen him publish over 100 technology papers and receive over 35 patents. He was the recipient of the IEEE Simon Ramo Medal in 2001 for his outstanding contributions to the MEMS field of research and currently holds the title of consulting professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University.

Dr. Rebeiz’s field of research includes RF-MEMS and microwave technologies, and he is currently professor and head of the Telecom, Integrated Circuits and Systems Lab at the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering in San Diego. He was dubbed a Fellow of IEEE and received the IEEE Microwave Prize in 2000. He also established a successful research team at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.
