Professor Khazaka, Ph.D. Carleton


Roni Khazaka received his Bachelor, Master and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada in 1995, 1998 and 2002 respectively. In 2002, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Mcgill University, Montreal, QC, Canada, where he currently is an Associate Professor.

Dr. Khazaka is a senior IEEE member and has also served on several IEEE committees. He was Montreal section treasurer (2005/2006), Montreal section student activities coordinator (2004), and IEEE Region 7 (Canada) student representative on the IEEE Student Activities Committee (19951998). He is a member of the Technical Program Committee of Signal Propagation on Interconnects Workshop since 2006, and is the CAD track co-chair of MWCAS/ NEWCAS 2007.
