Dr. Yang's research focuses on designing low-power digital and mixed-signal circuits for future secure and low-power applications, especially the Internet of Things (IoT). He is also interested in hardware security and circuit/system design with emerging devices.
Kaiyuan Yang received a Bachelor degree in electronics engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2012. He received the M.S. and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, in 2014 and 2017. He held research internships with Georgia Institute of Technology in 2011 and with ARM Research in 2015.
Dr. Yang’s research interests lie in the area of digital and mixed-signal solid-state circuits, VLSI and integrated system designs, with emphasis on low power and security. His Ph.D. work was recognized by the 2016-2017 IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS) Predoctoral Achievement Award. He was also recipient of the Distinguished Paper Award at the 2016 IEEE International Symposium on Security and Privacy (S&P), the Best Student Paper Award (1st place) at the 2015 IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS), the 2016 Pwnie Most Innovative Research Award Finalist, and the Best Undergraduate Thesis Award from Tsinghua University in 2012.
