Bio

I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2001. Prior to joining UT Austin in 2003, I was a Research Scientist and Lecturer with the Department of EECS at UC Berkeley. I am the recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER award for 2004, ACM SIGDA Outstanding New Faculty Award in 2007, and ACM Recognition of Service Award in 2007. I received the 2004 IEEE Transactions on Semiconductor Manufacturing Best Paper Award, IEEE/ACM William J. McCalla 2006 International Conference on Computer-Aided Design (ICCAD) Best Paper Award, as well as the Best Paper Awards at the 2005 Design Automation Conference (DAC) and at the 2006 International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED). In 2009, my work was featured as a Research Highlight in Communications of ACM. I am the co-author of the book "Design for Manufacturability and Statistical Design: A Constructive Approach" (2008) published by Springer.
