Kofi Odame Kofi Odame is an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. Kofi's primary interest is in analog integrated circuits for nonlinear signal processing. This work has applications in low-power electronics for implantable and wearable biomedical devices, as well as in autonomous sensor systems.

Kofi received the Cornell International Scholars and Students Award to study at Cornell University, graduating magna cum laude with a BSc in electrical engineering and a minor in computer science in 2002. He studied as a Cornell African Development Fellow to receive an MSc in electrical engineering under Bradley Minch in 2004. He then worked in Paul Hasler's lab at the Georgia Institute of Technology, earning a PhD in electrical engineering in 2008.

Graduate Students

Yueh-Ching Teng Yueh-Ching Teng is a PhD candidate at Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. He received an MSc degree in electrical and computer engineering from Ohio State University in 2011. From 2011 to 2012, he was a Research Assistant Engineer with the ElectroScience Laboratory where he worked on analog/mixed-signal circuit designs for RFID applications. His current research interests include ultra-low power and low-noise circuit and system design for biomedical applications.
Arun Rao Arun Rao is a PhD candidate at Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. He completed his BE in electrical engineering at Bangalore University, and earned an MS from Utah State University. His primary focus during his MS was design of low-power front-end amplifiers used on spacecraft instruments to measure the properties of the ionosphere. Upon completion of his MS, he worked at LSI Corp in Milpitas, California, as a test engineer. Arun's primary interests are in the field of low-power analog, digital ASIC's for image sensors and biomedical implantable devices. His current project explores design challenges of next generation image sensors.
Mohammad Takhti Mohammad Takhti is a candidate in the PhD Innovation Program at Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. He received his BS degree in 2007, and his MS degree in the Spring of 2010 from KN Toosi University of Technology (KNTU), both in electronics engineering. After his MS he worked on wireless power and data telemetry systems for biomedical implants at KNTU as an associate researcher. In the Analog Lab at Dartmouth, his current work involves implementing a highly-integrated electrical impedance tomography (EIT) system. His research interests also include medical assistive devices, design of analog-to-digital converters, and data and power telemetry to biomedical implantable systems.
Justice Amoh is a PhD candidate at Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. He completed his undergraduate studies at Dartmouth College with an AB/BE in electronics and computer engineering in 2013.
