I have studied and done research in the field of ultra-low power high speed mixed-signal circuit design during my undergraduate, Master and PhD studies, and got my PhD degree in microelectronics and solid-state electronics from Institute of Semiconductors, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2012.
I am very interested in developing ultra low-power sub-threshold neuromorphic VLSI devices and asynchronous digital communication circuits and systems. I am now focusing my research on designing low power event-driven multi-core neuromorphic processors by exploiting and combining both ultra-low power sub-threshold analog circuits and low-latency event-driven asynchronous circuits.
