Principal advisor

   Dr. Ken Choi

    

   Kyuwon (Ken) Choi is currently an associate professor in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Illinois Institute of Technology. He received the PhD. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA in 2002. During the PhD. he proposed and conducted several projects supported by NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), NSF (US National Science Foundation), and SRC (Scientific Research Corporation) regarding power-aware computing/communication (PACC). Since 2004, he had been with the Takayasu Sakurai Lab. in the University of Tokyo, Japan as a post-doc research associate, working on leakage-power-reduction circuit techniques.

Dr. Ken Choi was a senior CAD engineer and a technical consultant for low-power system-on-chip (SoC) design in Samsung Semiconductor, Broadcom and Sequence Design prior to joining IIT. In the past, he had eight-year industry experience in the area of VLSI chip design from compiler level to circuit level. Last few years, by using his novel low-power techniques, several processor and control chips were successfully fabricated in deep-submicrometer technology and more than 80 peer-reviewed journals and conference papers have been published. He is now a director of VLSI Design and Automation Lab (DA-Lab) at IIT, a senior member of IEEE, an editor-in-chief of Journal of Pervasive Technologies, guest editor of Springer and Wiley Journals, a TPC member for several IEEE circuit design conferences, and an ex-president in KSEA (Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association)-Chicago/Midwest chapter and a technical group director for KSEA-HQ now.
