[Biography]
Prof. C. Patrick Yue, Fellow of the IEEE, received the B.S. degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1992 with highest honor and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1994 and 1998, respectively. He has been a Professor in Electronic and Computer Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) since 2010. Between 2014 and 2015, he served as the Associate Provost for Knowledge Transfer. He is also the Founding Director of the HKUST-Qualcomm Joint Innovation and Research Lab and the Center of Industry Engagement and Internship in the School of Engineering. His current research interests focus on system-on-a-chip design for high-speed fiber-optic communication, visible light communication, and wireless power transfer for bio-implants. In 1998, Prof. Yue cofounded Atheros Communications (now Qualcomm-Atheros). While working in Silicon Valley, he served as a Consulting Assistant Professor at Stanford. In 2003, he joined Carnegie Mellon University as an Assistant Professor. In 2006, he moved to University of California Santa Barbara and was promoted to Professor in 2010. He has contributed to more than 130 peer-reviewed papers, 2 book chapters and holds 14 U.S. patents. He has served on the committees of IEEE Symposium on VLSI Circuits (VLSI-Circuits), IEEE European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC), IEEE MTT-S International Wireless Symposium (IWS), IEEE RFIC Symposium (RFIC), IEEE Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference (A-SSCC) and other IEEE-sponsored conferences. He was an Editor of the IEEE Electron Device Letters and IEEE Solid-State Circuit Society Magazine. He was a co-recipient of the 2003 International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) Best Student Paper award and the 2016 IEEE International Wireless Symposium Best Student Paper award. He is an Elected AdCom Member of the IEEE Solid-State Circuit Society. In 2016, Prof. Yue received the 11th Guanghua Engineering Science and Technology Youth Award by the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE). Prof. Yue is an IEEE Fellow and a Senior Member of Optical Society of America.
