Dr. Yu (Kevin) Cao received the B.S. degree in physics from Peking University in 1996. He received the M.A. degree in biophysics and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from University of California, Berkeley, in 1999 and 2002, respectively. After working as a post-doctoral researcher at the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC), he is now an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona.Dr. Cao’s research interests include modeling and design of nanoscale technology, robust and low-power design solutions, and reliable integration for post-silicon technologies. He has published more than 60 articles and co-authored one book, titled “Nano-CMOS Physical and Circuit Design". Dr. Cao received the 2006 NSF CAREER Award, the 2006 IBM Faculty Award, the 2004 Best Paper Award at ISQED and the 2000 Beatrice Winner Award at ISSCC. He currently serves on the technical program committee of numerous EDA and IC design conferences.
