Vincent Gaudet received a B.Sc. in Computer Engineering from the University of Manitoba in 1995, an M.A.Sc. from the University of Toronto in 1997, and a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto in 2003. Since 2010 he has been with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo. He previously held appointments as a faculty member at the University of Alberta (2002-2010) and as a Research Associate at Télécom-Bretagne (now IMT Atlantique, 2002), as well as visiting appointments at Tohoku University (2009) and Northeastern University (2008-2009). His research focuses on high-performance microsystems for information processing, with interests in stochastic computing, machine learning, and multiple-valued logic.
Prof. Gaudet is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a Professional Engineer. He has served as Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, Parts I and II, and is a Technical Editor for the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference. He was Chair (2016-2017) of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Multiple-Valued Logic and was a member (2013-2018) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society Technical Committee on Design and Implementation of Signal-Processing Systems. He was the Program Chair for the 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Multiple-Valued Logic (ISMVL) and General Chair of ISMVL 2015. He received the Petro Canada Young Innovator Award (2009) and the Engineering Society Teaching Excellence Award (2015). Over his career, he has taught many courses in analog and digital circuit design, and is a co-author on the 8th edition of the Microelectronic Circuits textbook (commonly known as Sedra/Smith) published by Oxford University Press. He has served as Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies (2013-2016) and department Chair (2016-2020).
