Yi-Jan Emery Chen (S’97–M’01–SM’07) received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C., in 1987, the M.S. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of California at Santa Barbara, CA, in 1991, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, in 2001. From 1992 to 1993, he was a Software Engineer with Siemens Telecommunication, where he was involved with synchronous optical network (SONET) equipment development. From 1993 to 1996, he was with Tektronix, where he was responsible for electronic test and measurement solutions. From 2000 to 2002, he was with National Semiconductor, where he was involved with radio-frequency (RF) transceiver and RF power amplifier (PA) design. In 2002, he was with the Georgia Institute of Technology as a Member of the Research Faculty. Since 2003, he has been with National Taiwan University, where he is currently a Professor. He has authored or coauthored over 100 refereed journal and conference papers. His recent research focuses on the design of RF integrated circuits (RFICs), RF power amplifiers, LCD/LED drivers, and power management ICs.
Dr. Chen is currently an Associate Editor of the IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters, and a member of IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (IEEE MTT-S) TC-24 on RFID Technologies. He has been serving on the Technical Program Committees of the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS), and the IEEE Radio and Wireless Symposium (RWS) since 2008. He was the co-recipient of the 2000 IEEE MTT-S IMS Best Student Paper Award and the co-recipient of the 2008 University Team Award for Contribution to Industrial Economics from the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwan.
