Assistant Research Professor

Dr. Morizio received the BS EE degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute in 1982, and the MSEE degree from Univeristy of Colorado in 1984. In 1995 he completed his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Duke University.

Dr. Morizio also has over 20 years corporate experience working with IBM Corporation and Mitsubishi Electronics America here in RTP, NC.

James Morizio joined Duke University in September 1995. He is currently a Assistant Research Professor in ECE and is also President of Triangle BioSystems, Inc., where he project leads numerous mixed-signal broadband and audio VLSI design projects. He conducts research in the areas of mixed-signal VLSI design and sub-system hardware development for biomedical instrumentation products. His current research is focused on the design and test of telemetric, low power, integrated data acquisition systems for brain source neural signals. He teaches graduate courses on Full Custom VLSI Design (EE261) and Integrated Analog Circuit Design (EE262).
