Zhuo Feng received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Texas A&M University, College Station, TX in 2009, the M.Eng. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from National University of Singapore, Singapore, in 2005 and the B.Eng. degree in Information Engineering from Xian Jiaotong University, Xian, China, in 2003. As of July 2009, he has been an assistant professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Michigan Technological University, Houghton, MI, where he is affiliated with the Computer Engineering Group. Feng’s research interests include heterogeneous energy-efficient computing, and integrated circuit computer-aided design. He received a Best Paper Award from ACM/IEEE Design Automation Conference (DAC) in 2013, and two Best Paper Award Nominations from IEEE/ACM International Conference on Computer-Aided Design (ICCAD) in 2006 and 2008. His current research projects are supported by the National Science Foundation and Intel Corporation. He has served on the technical program committees of major international conferences related to electronic design automation (EDA), including DAC, ISQED, ISED, and VLSI-DAT, and has been a technical referee for many leading IEEE/ACM journals in VLSI and parallel computing. He also served as a CAREER panelist for the National Science Foundation (NSF). He is a Senior Member of IEEE.
