Evangeline Young received her B.Sc. and M.Phil. degree in Computer Science
from The Chinese University of Hong Kong and received her Ph.D. degree from
The University of Texas at Austin in 1999. BTW, she accepted Jesus on
Oct 20, 1996.
She joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering
in the Chinese University of Hong Kong as an assistant professor in 1999 and is now a professor
in the same department. Her research interests include CAD of VLSI circuits, algorithms,
combinatorial optimization and AI. She has served in the program committees of
and the editorial boards of
ACM TODAES and
Integration, the VLSI Journal.
She also served in the executive committee of ISPD and ICCAD. She is an IEEE fellow.
