Research expertise: Emerging nano-devices and circuits beyond CMOS technology, new computing paradigms beyond von-Neumann architecture

Shimeng Yu received a bachelor’s degree in microelectronics from Peking University in 2009, and a master’s degree and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 2011 and in 2013, respectively. He did summer internships in IMEC, Belgium in 2011, and IBM TJ Watson Research Center in 2012. He is currently an assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer engineering at Arizona State University.

His research interests are emerging nano-devices and circuits beyond CMOS technology with focus on the resistive switching memories, and new computing paradigms beyond von-Neumann architecture with a focus on the brain-inspired neuromorphic computing. He has published more than 30 journal papers and 70 conference papers with over 2,000 citations and an H-index of 24.

He has served on the Technical Committee of Nanoelectronics and Gigascale Systems, IEEE Circuits and Systems Society since 2014.
