Dr. Chiu worked as a Senior Staff Member in a Silicon Valley startup company between 1997 and 1999, in charge of developing analog and mixed-mode circuits for CMOS digital imaging products. From 1999 to 2004, he was with the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC) at UC Berkeley, working on low-power, low-voltage CMOS data converters. In 2004, Dr. Chiu joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as an assistant professor, where he received the tenure offer in 2010. He is now an associate professor and the Erik Jonsson Distinguished Professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Texas at Dallas, where he is in charge of the Analog and Mixed-Signal Lab of the Texas Analog Center of Excellence. He is also a member of the executive committee of the center.
Dr. Chiu has received many awards in his professional career, including the Foreign Scholar Award at UCLA, the Regents' Fellowship, the Intel Foundation Fellowship, Cal View Teaching Fellow Award at Berkeley, and two awards from the Ministry of Education of China. In addition, he was also a co-recipient of the Jack Kilby Outstanding Student Paper Award from the 2004 International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the 46th ISSCC/DAC Student Design Contest Award in 2009, and the Best Regular Paper Award from the 2012 Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC). He was an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Express Briefs from 2007 to 2009, and has served on the technical program committees of a few IEEE solid-state circuits conferences including CICC, A-SSCC, and VLSI-DAT. Currently, he is a program committee member of the Symposium on VLSI Circuits (VLSI). He is an IEEE senior member.
