Dr. George Yuan received his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. Dr. Yuan received his BS in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing. During his PhD research, Dr. Yuan did research on developing nonlinear calibration techniques for high-speed low-power pipeline A/D converter. Dr. Yuan also developed a bio-inspired silicon Cort-X for neuromorphic computation. In 2006, he joined the Electronic and Computer Engineering Department at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) as an Assistant Professor. He is currently an Associate Professor in the department.

Prof. Yuan's research interests overlap integrated circuits, sensing device, and biomedical sensing. His main research interest is on developing high-performance mixed-signal integrated circuits or device-circuit-integrated module for various sensing applications. His research focuses on high-performance data converters, the integrated high-performance analog front-end of sensory systems, specialized CMOS imaging sensors, energy harvesting, extremely-low-power data communication, and integrated sensors. Related applications include cell-on-chip, DNA-on-chip, computed tomography, wearable/implantable electronics, 3D imaging sensing, high-speed CIS, high-resolution CIS, GS/s ADC etc.

Prof. Yuan is a Senior Member of IEEE. Prof. Yuan served as the chair of the Analog Signal Processing Technical Commitee and the Bio-medical and Life Science Circuits and Systems Technical Committee of the IEEE Circuit and Systems Society. Prof. Yuan served as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems, the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Express Briefs, and Guest Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers. Prof. Yuan served as the technical program program co-chair of IEEE Biomedical Circuits and Systems Conference (BioCAS)2009. Prof. Yuan had served as track co-chairs of IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS) 2008-2019.
