Academic Profile

Dr. Zheng Yuanjin received his B.Eng. from Xi'an Jiaotong University, P. R. China in 1993, M. Eng. from Xi'an Jiaotong University, P. R. China in 1996, and Ph.D. from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 2001. From July 1996 to April 1998, he worked in the National Key Lab of Optical Communication Technology, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China. He joined Institute of Microelectronics, A*SATAR on 2001 as a senior research engineer, and then promoted to a principle investigator and group leader for wideband RFIC design group. Here, he has leaded and developed various CMOS RF transceivers and baseband SoC for WLAN, WCDMA, Ultra-wideband, low power medical radio, and biomedical device etc. Since July, 2009, he joined Nanyang Technological University as assistant professor. His current research include GHz RFIC and SoC, Biomedical Imaging, Radar and UWB Systems and Circuits, SAW/acoustic/MEMS Sensors, and Energy and Power Conversion Circuits.

Prof. Zheng has published more than 100 prestigious international papers, 14 patents filed/disclosed and 4 book chapter (Springer). He served as session chairs and TPC members for several international conferences and constantly as technique reviewers for IEEE top journals. He has successfully leaded and contributed numerous public funded research and industry projects. He is a member of IEEE.
