My interests are on-die power conversions, power integrity, smart power ICs, and analog circuits for applications in power electronics and telecommunications.

My advisors are Professor Seth R. Sanders and Professor Elad Alon.

I got my B.S. Degree and M.S. Degree in Electrical Engineering from Hanoi University of Technology, Vietnam and KAIST, Korea, respectively.

I enjoyed working experiences with Institute of Material Science (IMS), VAST, Vietnam, JDA Technology Company, Korea, and the circuit and power groups in Sun Microsystems, AMD and Intel lab, as well as previous projects with LG Electronics and KEC of Korea.
