Short Biography

 

Shiyan Hu received his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Texas A&M University in 2008. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan Technological University, where he is the Director of Michigan Tech VLSI CAD Research Lab. He has been a Visiting Professor at IBM Research (Austin) during Summer 2010. His research interests are in the area of Computer-Aided Design of VLSI Circuits and Embedded Systems for Smart Home, where he has published various technical papers in the refereed journals and conferences. He is a 2009 recipient of ACM SIGDA Richard Newton DAC Scholarship (as the faculty advisor), a 2010 recipient of Faculty Invitation Fellowship from Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), and a 2014 recipient of the National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award.

 

He serves as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, and as Guest Editors for IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics and ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems. He has served as General Chair and Technical Program Committee (TPC) Chair for DAC Ph.D. Forum in 2013 and 2014, respectively, as TPC Subcommittee Chairs for DAC 2014 and ICCAD 2011, and as TPC members for a number of conferences such as DAC, ICCAD, ISPD, ICCD and ISQED. He serves as a Member of IEEE Technical Committee of the Building Automation, Control and Management. He is a Senior Member of IEEE.
