With his Hertz Fellowship, Steven Herbst
plans to conduct research that will enable wider participation in integrated
circuit (IC) design,
PhD student in electrical engineering at Stanford University.
he was a hardware designer at Apple, where he helped to develop the
electrical architecture of the Apple Watch inductive charger. As an IC designer at Intersil, Steven contributed to projects in
optical sensing and power management. His industry work has led to
his co-authorship of three U.S.
and seven U.S.
Steven earned degrees in EE from MIT (BS ’10,
MEng’11). His MEng thesis focused on techniques for reducing
noise in voltage reference ICs. While at MIT, he also served as president
of the institute-wide 6.270 Autonomous Robot Design Competition. Outside
