In the past, my research interest has been focused on analog/mixed-signal integrated circuits for high-speed and low-power wireline communication systems and advanced packaging technologies. I’m also interested in biomedical systems (such as DNA sensing)and emerging techniques (such as solar energy). I have extensive integrated circuit design experience in both university and industry, where I led the development of over 20 integrated circuits, ranging from memory to phase-lock-loops, from low-noise NMR readout chips to high-speed data link chips (>10Gb/s), from graphene circuits to 3D integrated circuits.
I am co-recipient of the Journal of Solid-State Circuit (JSSC) Best Paper in 2009 and the Beatrice Editorial Excellence Award in the 2009 IEEE International Solid- State Circuits Conference (ISSCC).
In the past several years, I have published 7 ISSCC papers (5 1st-authored). I have published more than 30 peer-reviewed technical papers, 2 book chapters, and currently hold 4 U.S. patents and 10 pending patents.
1. analog/mixed-signal integrated circuits for high-speed wireline comm. systems: analog and digital PLLs, high-speed serdes, equalization circuits, clock generation & distribution
2. low-noise, low-frequency analog/mixed-signal ICs: LNAs, OPAs, DACs, etc.
