Ali Kaichouhi is a sr. electronics design engineer at the Section Bioelectronics. He was born in M’Talsa, Morocco, in 1969. He started his technical career at Polytechnical school of electrical engineering at the MTS Versfelt/Ghijssen College in 1987, with specialization in electronics, which he finished in 1991.

But he wanted to delve more deeply into electronics and in 1995 he continued his studies at the University of Applied Sciences Hogeschool van Utrecht, Department of Electrical Engineering and Telematics, where he did the main course in Electrical Engineering with a specialization in Electronics. He received the B.E.E. degree in 1999. In the same year he joined the Section Electronics Research Laboratory (ELCA), Department of Microelectronics at the Delft University of Technology (TUDelft). He worked on electronic circuit design, simulation and IC design and layout, designing and making measurement setups, performing measurements, prototyping, PCB design, Electronics Lab management.

After a period of 17 years, he joined the section Bioelectronics (BE), Department of Microelectronics at the TUDelft in 2015 where he participates in research projects in the field of designing neural recording and stimulating systems for diagnosis and treatment of disorders, ultimately, in the human body. Still not satisfied with his knowledge of electronics, he went on to study at the university while he also worked. He received the M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering, track of Microelectronics at TUDelft, in 2018. Prior to joining TUDelft, he worked for several companies as hardware design/network/computer engineer.
