Richard Grzybowski, TWG & PEG Leaders

Dr. Richard Grzybowski, Ph.D., chairs the Internet of Things Product Emulator Group (PEG).

He currently serves as the the Director of Research and Development for MACOM Integrated Photonic Solutions. Prior to its acquisition by MACOM, he was Chief Technical Officer of Photonic Controls, where he focused the business on silicon photonics. He has also served as Research Director of Systems Engineering & Program Management at Corning Inc., where he led the systems engineering competency for the Science & Technology organization with special emphasis on early stage programs for keystone components in complex systems. Dr. Grzybowski developed and led an organization of program leaders bringing systems engineering to major projects. Products developed included high-performance glass manufacturing, automotive controls, ultra-capacitors, RF distribution systems, optical backplanes (25G), optical switches (40G), and optical transceivers from research to early stage manufacturing. Dr. Grzybowski has authored and been awarded multiple DoD, DARPA and DoE contracts where he has served as program manager and chief systems engineer. These programs have included the delivery of supercomputer optical interconnect products and harsh environment jet engine control systems.

Dr. Grzybowski’s research interests include silicon photonics, optical interconnect networks for high-performance supercomputers and system applications operating in harsh environments. He has served as Chairman of the Industrial Board of Directors for the Optoelectronics Industry Development Association (OIDA) and is currently Chairman of the Industrial Board of Directors for the MIT Microphotonics Center’s Communication Technologies Roadmapping Consortium and Secretary for INCOSE.

Dr. Grzybowski holds a Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut, an M.S. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and a B.S. from Yale University—all in electrical engineering. He also has a diploma in Organ Performance from the Hartt School of Music. He has 23 patents, more than 80 publications and is a co-author of the book High Temperature Electronics (CRC Press). Richard is a senior member of the IEEE and past Secretary of INCOSE.
