Short Biography

Hui Wu received the BSc degree in electrical engineering and MSc degree in microelectronics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, in 1996 and 1998, and the PhD degree in electrical engineering from California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, in June 2003, respectively. His PhD thesis work focused on high-speed signal generation using CMOS RF integrated circuits, embodied in the development of integrated distributed voltage-controlled oscillators and injection locked frequency dividers. He was a co-op researcher at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center during the summer of 2001, investigating integrated equalizers for 10-Gbps fiber optic systems. In 2002-2003, he was with Axiom Microdevices, Orange, CA, developing the world's first fully-integrated CMOS power amplifiers for cellular wireless communications.

In 2003, Dr. Wu joined the faculty of the University of Rochester, where he is an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, and director of Laboratory for Advanced Integrated Circuits and Systems. His current research interests are in inter- and intra-chip optical/electrical interconnects, silicone photonics, electronic-photonic integrated circuits (EPIC), wideband RF and high-speed integrated circuits, high performance clocking, and nanoelectronics using emerging technologies. Dr. Wu has authored and co-authored over fifty peer-reviewed papers in leading technical journals and conferences, and holds several patents.
