High-speed low-power low-noise analog/mixed-signal IC design, data converters, bio-sensors/circuits, TFT circuits, neuromorphic circuits.
Prof George Yuan received both his MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, in 2001 and 2006, respectively. Prof Yuan received his BS in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, in 2000. During his PhD, Prof Yuan did research on developing nonlinear calibration techniques for high-speed low-power pipeline A/D converter. Prof Yuan also developed a bio-inspired silicon Cort-X for neuromorphic engineering. Since Aug. 2006, he joined the Electronic and Computer Engineering Department at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) as an assistant professor.
Prof Yuan's main research interests are on developing low-power low-noise analog/mixed-signal circuits, particularly for bio-medical applications. He is also interested in developing interfacing read-out circuitry for sensors and devices.
