"Integrated circuit design is the core of electrical engineering, which requires expertise in device physics and fabrication, circuit architecture, power management, signal processing, and system control. However, the beauty of IC design is not restricted within the domain of engineering. It indeed goes far beyond it, providing abundant freedom and space for unique and artistic personal touches in a nanometer scale wonderland."
"I am continually inspired by the positive, can-do spirit of our students, staff, and faculty. It is a blessing to work in such an excellent environment, and it is an honor to be appointed as an Erik Jonsson Distinguished Professor."
"Through my work in academia, industry and the federal government, I have become a strategist who enjoys working with faculty, students and other stakeholders to create high-quality academic programs that deliver new knowledge to society and the talent to apply it."
