Jan Van der Spiegel is a Professor of the Electrical and Systems Engineering Department, and the Director of the Center for Sensor Technologies at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the former chair of the Electrical Engineerig and interim chair of the Electrical and Systems Engineering Departments. Dr. Van der Spiegel received his Masters degree in Electro-Mechanical Engineering and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Leuven, Belgium, in 1974 and 1979, respectively. His primary research interests are in mixed-mode VLSI design, CMOS vision sensors for polarization imaging, biologically based image sensors and sensory information processing systems, micro-sensor technology, and analog-to-digital converters. He is the author of over 160 journal and conference papers and holds 4 patents.

He is a fellow of the IEEE, the IEEE 2007 EAB Major Educational Innovation Award, the recipient of the IEEE Third Millennium Medal, the UPS Foundation Distinguished Education Chair and the Bicentennial Class of 1940 Term Chair. He received the Christian and Mary Lindback Foundation, and the S. Reid Warren Award for Distinguished Teaching, and the Presidential Young Investigator Award.

He has served on several IEEE program committees (IEDM, ICCD, ISCAS and ISSCC) and was the technical program chair of the 2007 International Solid-State Circuit Conference (ISSCC 2007). He is an elected member of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society and is also the SSCS chapters Chairs coordinator and former Editor of North and South America of Sensors and Actuators. He is a member of Phi Beta Delta and Tau Beta Pi.
