Sohmyung Ha received the B.S (summa cum laude) and the M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, Korea, in 2004 and 2006, respectively. From 2006 to 2010, he worked at Samsung Electronics as a mixed-signal circuit designer for commercial multimedia devices. After this extended career in industry, he returned to academia as a Fulbright Scholar, and obtained the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Bioengineering from the Department of Bioengineering, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA, USA, in 2015 and 2016, respectively. Since 2016, he has been with New York University Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi, UAE as Assistant Professor and New York University, New York, NY, USA as Global Network Assistant Professor.

He received a Fulbright Fellowship in 2010 and the Engelson Best Ph.D. Thesis Award for Biomedical Engineering from the Department of Bioengineering, University of California, San Diego in 2016. He has served as Associate Editor of Smart Health (Elsevier), IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems, and Frontiers in Electronics, and is currently a member of the Analog Signal Processing Technical Committee of IEEE Circuits and Systems Society. His research aims at advancing the engineering and applications of silicon integrated technology interfacing with biology in a variety of forms ranging from implantable biomedical devices to unobtrusive wearable sensors.
