Biography

Assistant Professor Jennifer Kitchen joined Arizona State University in 2013.  She received her doctorate in electrical engineering at Arizona State University in May of 2007, where she specialized in efficiency enhancement and linearization techniques for RF power amplifiers in wireless transmitters. During her graduate studies, Jennifer was a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow, and a Semiconductor Research Corporation Master’s Scholar.

While at ASU, from 2003 to 2006, Kitchen worked for the RF power amplifier handset product group at Motorola Inc. and Freescale Semiconductor.  In 2007, Kitchen became the Arizona Design Center Manager for a startup company, Ubidyne, Inc., that aims to revolutionize wireless basestations by producing a digital antenna-embedded radio solution. In 2009, Kitchen joined ViaSat, Inc. as head of an IC (Integrated Circuit) design team within the Advanced Microwave Product Group. Her group focused on designing low-power integrated transceivers for SATCOM; among other chipsets for military applications.

Kitchen’s research focuses on improvements in efficiency and power management for high-frequency circuits and systems. She is using exotic materials such as gallium-nitride to create high-efficiency power management systems for solar arrays and batteries. She is also working on a higher level of integration, bringing greater functionality on a single integrated circuit.
