Paddy French received his B.Sc. in mathematics and M.Sc. in electronics from Southampton University, UK, in 1981 and 1982, respectively. In 1986 he obtained his Ph.D., also from Southampton University, which was a study of the piezoresistive effect in polysilicon. After 18 months as a post doc at Delft University, The Netherlands, he moved to Japan in 1988 and worked on automotive sensors at the Central Engineering Laboratories of Nissan Motor Company. He returned to the Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory (TU Delft) in 1991. In 1999 he was awarded the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek chair and was from 2002 to 2012 head of the Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory. In 2019 he moved to the bioelectronics Laboratory. He was Editor-in-chief of Sensors and Actuators A and General Editor of Sensors and Actuators A&B from 2002-2018. He is an IEEE Fellow and the IAAM. His research interests are integrated sensor systems, technology in particular for medical and environmental applications.
