Research

I received BSc. from Beijing Normal University in July 1989, and earned MSc. in June 2002 and Ph.D. in March 2007 from KTH - The Royal Institute of Technology. After PhD, I conducted two years of postdoctoral research at KTH. I had worked 11 years in circuit and system design in industry after obtaining my BSc. and before continuing my MSc. and PhD studies. In Oct. 2012, I received my MBA in Innovation and Growth from the Business and Innovation Development unit, University of Turku, Finland.

I am an associate professor leading the Dependable Autonomous Systems group at School of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), KTH. My research interests include Network-on-Chip (NoC), MPSoC Architecture and Methodology, and Networked Embedded Systems.

I have been working on Network-on-Chip (NoC), an emerging System-on-Chip paradigm and many-core communication platform. Our group has coined the term "Network-on-Chip (NoC)" in year 2000. Our NoC is termed Nostrum. We have developed a flexible NoC simulator called the Nostrum NoC Simulation Environment (NNSE). Meanwhile we are developing the FORmal SYstem DEsign (FORSYDE) methodology. We are also researching wireless sensor networks with fault-tolerance, autonomy, low cost and ultra-low power.

I serve in the TPC for the conferences: NoCS, NoC-Arc, SoCC, NPC, APPT, ASICon.
