Nanette Gruber is a Lead Engineer at GE Research, Niskayuna, NY. She has over 24 years of experience in the field of mixed signal electronics and MEMS sensors. She hold a Masters in Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics from Case Western Reserve University in 1994, and a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Central Florida in 1992.
Her thesis involved the design, fabrication, and testing of a piezoelectric MEMS pressure sensor with PMOS transistor readout. The project was the first to successfully fabricate working PMOS transistors operating down to the subthreshold region in the Microfabrication Lab at CWRU. She then joined Delco Electronics Corporation, a subsidiary of General Motors, working on the design of different product line pressure sensors for the automotive market. Nanette joined GE Research in 1996, where she has worked on mixed signal ASICs for GE businesses such as Healthcare, Industrial Systems, Aviation, and external partners such as Lockheed Martin. She has worked on electronics for Scaleable ADCs, circuit breakers, Digital X-Ray systems, PET, CT, MRI, and ultrasound, as well as remote embedded sensors (REMS) in composites which utilize energy harvesting for aircraft. In addition, Nanette has developed digital ASICs and FPGAs for Healthcare and Aviation using VHDL coding and synthesis. She is currently working on PET ASIC, ultrasound, and MRI projects.
In her free time, Nanette enjoys spending time with her husband and children, running, watercolor and oil painting, and piano.
