Luke Duncan, Ph.D.


Dr. Luke Duncan has over a decade of experience in the research and development of advanced integrated circuit designs spanning analog, RF, mixed-signal, and digital systems.

Prior to joining Niobium, Luke built and led an R&D team at The Design Knowledge Company (later acquired by Centauri and KBR) that primarily collaborated with the Air Force Research Labs to research hardware security for state-of-the-art CMOS circuits and systems. The team was comprised of groups working on IC design, verification/validation, and firmware development.  During that time, his responsibilities ranged from technical lead and business development to analog circuit design, frontend/backend digital SoC design, and validation.

Lucas Duncan received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from The Ohio State University in 2009, 2012, and 2017, respectively.
