Dr. Yang received B.Sc. degree from Sichuan University in 2011. In the same year, guided by Prof. Huaqiang Wu, he had a short internship in the Institute of Microelectronics at Tsinghua University. From 2012 to 2016, he pursued Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at National University of Singapore under the guidance of Prof. Yihong Wu. Additionally, he was also co-supervised by principal scientist Dr. Kui Yao from Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). He was the recipient of President’s Graduate Fellowship during 2014 to 2016. After that, he worked as a research engineer and research fellow. He is currently an assistant professor in the School of Information Science and Technology at ShanghaiTech University.
