Paul Gray joined the faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS), at U.C. Berkeley in 1971, where he is now a professor emeritus. He has held several administrative posts at Berkeley, including executive vice chancellor and provost (2000-2006), dean of the College of Engineering (1996-2000), and chairman of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (1990-93). His research interests have included bipolar and MOS circuit design, electro-thermal interactions in integrated circuits, device modeling, telecommunications circuits, and analog-digital interfaces in VLSI systems. Prior to joining U.C. Berkeley, he was with the Research and Development Laboratory at Fairchild Semiconductor (1969-1971) in Palo Alto, California. He is the co-author of a widely used college textbook on analog integrated circuit design.
Dr. Gray is a member and former Councillor of the National Academy of Engineering, and serves on several corporate boards. He is a member of the board of trustees of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, and served as Interim President of the foundation in 2014.
