Biography

Dr. Wang Bo, Angela is an Assistant Professor at SUTD since September 2020. Her research interests span various aspects of energy-efficient computing systems, architecture and circuit design, including on-device artificial intelligence, neuromorphic computing, biomedical wearables and ultra-low voltage memories. Particularly, her research work on biomedical wearables was featured by The Straits Times in 2020. She authored and co-authored many papers in prestigious journals and conferences, including JSSC, TCAS-I, TVLSI, A-SSCC, MobiSys, DATE, etc. She has served as a reviewer for journals and conferences such as TCAS-I, TVLSI, TCAS-II and ISCAS. Since 2021, she has also served as an editorial board member of JCSC. She was the recipient of IEEE Circuits & Systems Seoul Chapter Award in 2014.

Dr. Wang received her Ph.D. degree from Nanyang Technological University in 2015. Prior to joining SUTD, she was a research fellow, working with Prof. Peh Li-Shiuan (IEEE Fellow) at National University of Singapore from 2016 to 2020. Before that, she was a staff engineer at MediaTek Singapore. She is an IEEE senior member.

Openings

The research group of Prof. Wang Bo invites applications for the position of Research Assistant or Associate on Neuromorphic Computing Accelerators. Neuromorphic Computing deploys Spiking Neuron Networks (SNN) models and learning rules to solve machine learning problems in a more energy-efficient way compared to Artificial Neural Networks. Candidates are expected to work with the Principal Investigator and possibly with Prof. Peh Li-Shiuan at NUS to (1) design and validate energy-efficient on-chip training architecture and circuits and (2) assist in novel device modeling and integration. Familiarity with RTL design with Verilog or hardware-software co-design strategies will be a strong plus. Please feel free to contact Prof. Wang via bo_wang@sutd.edu.sg for more information.
