Short CV

Tsung-Yi Ho received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University in 2005. He is a Professor with the Department of Computer Science of National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu, Taiwan. From 2007 to 2014 and 2015, he was with National Cheng Kung University and National Chiao Tung University, respectively. His research interests include design automation and test for microfluidic biochips and nanometer integrated circuits. He has presented 8 tutorials and contributed 8 special sessions in ACM/IEEE conferences, all in design automation for microfluidic biochips. He has been the recipient of many research awards, such as Dr. Wu Ta-You Memorial Award of National Science Council (NSC) of Taiwan, Junior Research Investigators Award of the Academia Sinica, Distinguished Young Scholar Award of the Taiwan IC Design Society, Outstanding Young Electrical Engineer Award of the Chinese Institute of Electrical Engineering, the Delta Electronics K.T. Li Research Award, the ACM Taipei Chapter Young Researcher Award, the IEEE Tainan Chapter Gold Member Award, the Invitational Fellowship of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), the Humboldt Research Fellowship by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, and the Hans Fischer Fellow by the Institute of Advanced Study of the Technical University of Munich. He was a recipient of the Best Paper Awards at the VLSI Test Symposium (VTS) in 2013 and IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems in 2015. He currently serves as an ACM Distinguished Speaker, a Distinguished Visitor of the IEEE Computer Society, the Chair of the IEEE Computer Society Tainan Chapter, the Chair of the ACM SIGDA Taiwan Chapter, and Associate Editor of the ACM Journal on Emerging Technologies in Computing Systems and IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems, IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration Systems, Guest Editor of IEEE Design & Test of Computers, and the Technical Program Committees of major conferences, including DAC, ICCAD, DATE, ASP-DAC, ISPD, ICCD, etc.
