About Me


I received the B.E. degree in Electronic Science & Technology from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, in 2008. During the spring of 2007, I studied Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University as an exchange student. Currently, I am working towards the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering (with an emphasis on Integrated Circuits design) at the University of California, Berkeley.

My research includes energy-efficient high-speed links, mixed-signal building blocks, analog design methodologies, and novel devices. In the summer of 2010 and 2011, I was an engineering intern at Rambus Inc., working on next-generation low-power memory interfaces.
