Biography

    Yong Chen received the B.Eng. degree in electronic and information engineering, Communication University of China (CUC), Beijing, China, in 2005, and the Ph.D. in Engineering degree in microelectronics and solid-state electronics, Institute of Microelectronics of Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMECAS), Beijing, China, in 2010.

    From 2010 to 2013, He worked as Post-Doctoral Researcher in Institute of Microelectronics, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. From 2013 to 2016, he was Research Fellow responsible for high-speed (40+Gb/s) wireline communication and Low Energy Electronic Systems (LEES) project under the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) on RF CMOS transceiver in VIRTUS/EEE, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He is now an Assistant Professor of the State Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI (AMSV) of University of Macau, Macao, China, since March 2016.

    His research interests include analog/biomedical detection and RF integrated circuit, mm-wave system and circuit, high-speed on-chip and chip-to-chip Electrical/Optical Interconnects
