I received my B.S. and M.S. from Fudan University, Shanghai, P. R. China, in 1992 and 1995 respectively and the Ph.D. from University of Iowa, Iowa City, in 1999. Currently I am Professor at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Here are my latest curriculum vitae and short biography and my publication list.


I am the director of VLSI System and Computation Lab (VSC Lab) at UC Riverside. I am also the associate director for the Computer Engineering Program at Bourns College of Engineering. I am also a cooperating faculty member (co-faculty) of the Computer Science and Engineering department at Bourns College of Engineering.


In addition, I am the Editor in Chief (EIC) of Integration, The VLSI Journal, which is one of the primary journals in the VLSI design and CAD/design automation areas.
