Please join us in welcoming Yingyan Lin, Texas Instruments Visiting Assistant Professor, to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice! Dr. Lin's research interests are in the areas of energy-efficient machine learning systems for cloud and mobile computing. She received her M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, and her Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Dr. Lin is also interested in analog and mixed-signal circuits, error resiliency techniques, and VLSI circuits and architectures for machine learning systems on resource-constrained platforms. From 2007-2009 she worked at China's National Research Center for Integrated Circuits in Wuhan, where she designed analog and mixed-signal circuit IPs for TOSHIBA microelectronics corporation in Japan. From 2009-2011, she was a visiting scholar at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
In 2016, she was the recipient of the second place Best Student Paper award at the IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Systems (SiPS) and received the Robert T. Chien Memorial Award at UIUC for Excellence in Research. We look forward to sharing her accomplishments at Rice!
