“If I knew what I was doing, it wouldn't be called research.” - Albert Einstein.


I'm an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. My research interests include combinatorial algorithm and machine learning with applications in VLSI computer aided design (CAD) and cyber-physical systems (CPS) (more about my research). I'm serving as Secretary and web chair of IEEE Technical Committee on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). I also have served in the program committees of DAC, ICCAD, ASPDAC, ISPD, GLSVLSI, ISQED, the editorial boards of Integration, the VLSI Journal and IET Cyber-Physical Systems: Theory & Applications.

I am always looking for motivated graduate students with background in computer science, electronic engineering, or mathematics.
