Biography
Richard M. White is a professor emeritus in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences and a Co-Founding Director of the Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center. Current research interests include wireless microsensors and energy scavenging devices for use in electric power systems and a portable particulate matter monitor for measuring concentrations of airborne aerosols and diesel exhaust particulates.

Professor White conducted microwave device research at General Electric before joining the faculty of the University of California, Berkeley, in 1962.

Professor White also holds numerous U.S. patents and has co-authored texts and reference books on Solar Cells (1983), Acoustic Wave Sensors (1997), and Electronics (2001). In addition to the 2003 Rayleigh Award of the IEEE for seminal contributions to surface acoustic wave technology, Professor White is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the IEEE and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and is the recipient of many academic awards including the IEEE Cledo Brunetti Award (1986), U.C. Berkeley Chancellor's Professorship, and the 2003 U.C. Berkeley Community Service citation award. In 2013, Professor White was a co-recipient of the IEEE/RSE/Wolfson, James Clerk Maxwell Award with Professor Richard Muller.
