Yi Chung Chen is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Tennessee State University. He received the Ph.D. degree from Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Pittsburgh, USA in 2014, and the M.S. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from New York University, New York in 2011. He has served as TPC member in many conference committees. He has served as committee member of regional and national STEM education committees for silicon and digital system education of underrepresented minorities. He has also served as organizing and technical program committee members of conferences.
Prof. Chen’s has published interdisciplinary papers in the major research fields across computing systems and applications. His research contribution lies in vertical integration of EDA tools for design of application-specific computer system. He investigates data-driven intelligent systems for adaptive, resilient, and expandable operations demanded by critical missions. His research projects are supported by the US AF, the US ARMY, ASEE, and NSF. In addition, Prof. Chen is an acting committee member of semiconductor research and education working group for minority serving institutions. He is on a mission to prepare future semiconductor workforce of underrepresented groups in engineering by building education and research capacity with opensource EDA tools.
