Shimeng Yu

Shimeng Yu is an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia. He received the B.S. degree in microelectronics from Peking University, Beijing, China in 2009, and the M.S. degree and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University, Stanford, California, in 2011 and in 2013, respectively. From 2013 to 2018, he was an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona. He joined the ECE faculty at Georgia Tech in fall 2018.

Prof. Yu’s research interests are nanoelectronic devices and circuits for energy-efficient computing systems. His expertise is on the emerging non-volatile memories (e.g., RRAM) for different applications, such as machine/deep learning accelerator, neuromorphic computing, monolithic 3D integration, and hardware security.

Among Prof. Yu’s honors, he was a recipient of the DOD-DTRA Young Investigator Award in 2015, the NSF Faculty Early CAREER Award in 2016, the ASU Fulton Outstanding Assistant Professor in 2017, the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) Early Career Award in 2017, and the ACM Special Interests Group on Design Automation (SIGDA) Outstanding New Faculty Award in 2018.

Prof. Yu has served on the Technical Program Committees for many conferences, including the IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM), IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS), ACM/IEEE Design Automation Conference (DAC), and ACM/IEEE International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD).
