Professor Wang received his B.Sc. from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2003, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, in 2007 and 2009, respectively. During the summer of 2004, he was with Guidant Corporation (later acquired by Boston Scientific), working on accelerometer systems for implantable biomedical devices. In 2010, he joined Intel Corporation. His work at Intel included the next-generation energy-efficient mm-Wave communication link and broadband CMOS Font-End-Modules for Wi-Fi systems. In May 2011, he joined Skyworks Solutions, where he led the development of SAW-less integrated filter solutions for low-cost cellular-standard power amplifier Front-End-Modules. In spring 2012, he joined the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology as an assistant professor. He is currently a Full professor at ETH Switzerland.
Dr. Wang is generally interested in innovating and engineering mixed-signal, RF, and mm-Wave integrated systems for wireless communication and bioelectronics applications. He is a member of Sigma Xi, the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society, and the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society.
Dr. Taiyun Chi joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University as an Assistant Professor in January 2019. Taiyun Chi received the B.S. degree (with highest honor) from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2012, and the Ph.D. degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2017. In 2018, He was with Speedlink Technology Inc., a silicon-valley start-up, working on broadband millimeter-wave transceiver front-end for 5G communication.
Dr. Chi is a recipient of the Sigma Xi Best Ph.D. Thesis Award (Georgia Tech Chapter) in 2018, the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC) Best Paper Award in 2017, the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS) Predoctoral Achievement Award in 2017, the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) Graduate Fellowship for Medical Applications in 2016, the Analog Devices Inc. Outstanding Student Designer Award in 2015, and the USTC Guo Moruo Presidential Scholarship in 2012. He was also a co-recipient of the IEEE SENSORS Best Live Demo Award (2nd place) in 2016, and the IEEE RFIC Best Student Paper Awards (2nd place) in 2016 and 2018.
