About me

I was born in Jiangsu Province, China. I received my B.Eng in Electrical and Information Engineering from North China Electric Power University (Beijing Campus), Beijing, China in Jun 2000, and M.S. and PhD from Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at State University of New York at Stony Brook, Stony Brook, NY on Dec 2002 and Jul 2005 respectively. Since Aug 2005, I have been with Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at University of Minnesota Duluth, Duluth, MN.

My main research interests are VLSI CAD (Computer Aided Design) and SoC (System-on-Chip) Design, particularly for CMOS analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits. I have been working on the following topics:
(1) Develop a methodology for system-level topology synthesis of analog and mixed-signal systems for early architecture exploration and optimal architecture selection considering circuit-level constraints and non-idealities
(2) Develop methods and techniques for efficient and realistic statistical analysis of transistor-level analog circuits
(3) Design high-performance analog and mixed-signal circuits, such as Sigma-Delta A/D converters

(4) Develop and implement optimization algorithms for synthesis and parameter optimization of analog, digital and mixed-signal circuits


Recently I have also worked on algorithms and hardware solutions for vehicle tracking in intelligent transportation systems:

(1)  Design hardware acceleration of image/video processing algorithms for vehicle tracking

(2)  Design an vision-based automated traffic data collection system for intersections/roundabouts
