I am currently an Associate Professor in the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering at the State University of New York (SUNY) - Binghamton. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh in 2010, and my M.S. and B.S. in Computer Engineering from the Northwestern Polytechnical University (China) in 2006 and 2003 respectively. Prior to joining BU, I spent one year at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), working with Prof. Ravisharkar K. Iyer on developing next-generation reliable and reconfigurable medical systems and devices. I worked on reconfigurable computer architecture in Embedded Systems Group at the Microsoft Research (Redmond, WA) in Summer 2009. I am a Senior Member of IEEE and a Member of ACM.
I am serving as the Associate Editor for the following journals: Computers in Medicine and Biology, Computers and Electrical Engineering, and BioMedical Engineering Online, as well as the Member of Editorial Board for the following journals: International Journal of Cognitive Biometrics (IJCB, Inderscience), International Journal of Computational Medicine and Healthcare (IJCMH, Inderscience), and International Journal of Monitoring and Surveillance Technologies (IJMSTR, IGI Global)
- Mobile and wearable computing, wireless health
- Brain biometrics, cognitive neuroscience in cybersecurity, biofeedback and neurofeedback
- Cyber-physical security, 3D printer security, security and privacy in smart and connected health
- Neuromorphic computing, machine learning, emerging architectures for resource-constrained computing
For Current Students:
I teach EECE 455/574: CMOS VLSI Circuits and Architectures in Fall 2016. My office hour is between 1:00pm to 3:00pm on Tuesday. Please email me for appointments if you can't make the drop-in office hours.
For Prospective Students:
Students with a strong expertise in the following areas are highly welcome: embedded systems and hardware design, wireless sensor networks, biomedical signal processing, and artificial intelligence. Students who have an interdisciplinary background in both computer engineering and biomedical engineering are particularly encouraged to contact me. If you are interested in my research, please send me an email with your resume/CV.
