Dr. Muldavin received his BSE in Engineering Physics from the University of Michigan in 1995 where he performed research in the area of high-energy spin physics. He went on to receive his MSE and Ph.D. (2001) in Electrical Engineering with a major in Electromagnetics and a minor in Communications. His graduate research focused on micro-machined circuits and devices for RF and millimeter-wave circuit and antenna applications. He has worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory since 2001 researching advanced microelectronics, semiconductor fabrication, embedded systems, and open and distributed architectures. He is currently on an IPA assignment to the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems Engineering where he serves as Deputy Director assigned to address near-term and longer term access to trusted and assured foundry capabilities.
