    Prof. Pingqiang Zhou received the M.E. degree from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2007, and a from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA, in 2012. He has been an Assistant Professor with the School of Information Science and Technology at ShanghaiTech University since July 2013. Prior to joining ShanghaiTech, he was with the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY, USA, as a research intern, in 2011, and with the University of Minnesota as a Post-Doctoral Researcher from 2012 to 2013. He was also with the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences, University of California, Berkeley as a visiting scholar from Jan 2015 to June 2015.
     Dr. Zhou is the recipient of an Outstanding Master's Thesis Award from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China and the James Zeese Fellowship for his Ph.D. Thesis work from the University of Minnesota. He won the Intel/Helic/CICC Student Scholarship Award for top student papers at the 2011 IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference and a Best Paper Award Nomination at the 2010 Asia/South Pacific Design Automation Conference. Dr. Zhou is the invited referee for a number of top journals such as TCAD, TVLSI and TODAES in the EDA area, and serves as the TPC member for top conferences such as DAC, ICCAD and ASP-DAC.
