Yong Chen (Nick) received the B.Eng. degree in electronic and information engineering, Communication University of China (CUC), Beijing, China, in 2005, and the Ph.D. in Engineering degree in microelectronics and solid-state electronics, Institute of Microelectronics of Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMECAS), Beijing, China, in 2010.
From 2010 to 2013, he worked as Post-Doctoral Researcher in Institute of Microelectronics, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. From 2013 to 2016, he was Research Fellow responsible for high-speed (40+Gb/s) wireline communication and Low Energy Electronic Systems (LEES) project under the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) on RF CMOS transceiver in VIRTUS/EEE, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. In 2016, He joined the State Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI (AMSV) of University of Macau, Macao, China, where he is now an Associate Professor.
His research interests include integrated circuit designs involving analog/mixed-signal/RF/mm-wave/sub-THz/wireline.
Dr. Chen was the recipient of the “Haixi” (three places across the Straits) postgraduate integrated circuit design competition (Second Prize) in 2009, the co-recipient of the Best Paper Award at the IEEE Asia Pacific Conference on Circuits and Systems (APCCAS) in 2019, the Best Student Paper Award (Third Place) at the IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) Symposium in 2021, the Macao Science and Technology Invention Award (First Prize) in 2020, and the Macao Science and Technology Invention Award (Second Prize) in 2022.
