Woogeun Rhee (李宇根) 长聘教授
School of Integrated Circuits, Rm. A307,
Tsinghua University, Beijing100084,China
Woogeun Rhee received the B.S. degree in electronics engineering from Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea, in 1991, the M.S. degree in electrical engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1993, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, in 2001.
From 1997 to 2001, he was with Conexant Systems, Newport Beach, CA, where he was a Principal Engineer and developed low-power, low-cost fractional-N synthesizers. From 2001 to 2006, he was with IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY and worked on clocking area for high-speed I/O serial links, including low-jitter phase-locked loops, clock-and-data recovery circuits, and on-chip testability circuits. In August 2006, he joined the faculty as an Associate Professor at the School of Integrated Circuits (formerly, the Institute of Microelectronics and the Department of Microelectronics and Nanoelectronics), Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, and became a Professor in December 2011. He was a Visiting Professor at Seoul National University, Korea from August 2022 to February 2023. His current research interests include short-range low-power radios for mobile IoT, UWB transceivers for secure wireless connectivity, and clock/frequency generation circuits for wireline and wireless communications. He has published >150 IEEE papers and holds 24 U.S. patents.
Dr. Rhee is a Region 10 Ex-Officio AdCom member (2020- ) of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society, an IEEE SSCS Chapters Steering Committee member (2021- ), an IEEE CASS BoG member as SSCS representative (2023- ), and an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer (2016-2017). He currently serves as an Associate Editor for IEEE OPEN JOURNAL OF THE SOLID-STATE CIRCUIT SOCIETY. He has been an Associate Editor for IEEE JOURNAL OF SOLID-STATE CIRCUITS (2012-2018), IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS PART-II: EXPRESS BRIEFS (2008-2009) and a Guest Editor for IEEE JOURNAL OF SOLID-STATE CIRCUITS Special Issue in November 2012, November 2013, and October 2022. He has served on the Technical Program Committees of several IEEE conferences, including ISSCC, CICC, and A-SSCC. He is the TPC Chair of A-SSCC 2021 and currently serves on the Steering Committee of A-SSCC. He is an IEEE Fellow.
