of Minnesota, Twin Cities, in 2005. From 1992 to 1999, he was with Samsung
Electronics, Korea, where he was involved in the design of video signal
driver circuits for flat panel displays. Following receipt of his PhD in
January 2005, he was with Qualcomm in San Diego
as a Senior RF IC Design Engineer until he joined the School
of Electrical and Computer
Engineering at Purdue
University as an

His research interests include analog, RF, and mixed-signal circuit design
for wireless and wireline communications and bio-medical systems. He is the
first place winner of the
2002-2003 SRC SiGe BiCMOS Design Challenge (as a lead designer) and the
2007-2008 SRC/SIA IC Design Challenge (as a lead faculty), and holds 10 US
patents. He has been serving as a Co-Chair of the DAC/ISSCC Student Design Contest (SDC) since October 2006,
as an Associate Editor of the IEEE
Transactions on VLSI Systems since
January 2009, and as a member of the Analog Signal Processing Technical
Program Committee (ASPTPC) in the
IEEE Circuits and System Society since May 2006.
