Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Dan Jiao received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in October 2001. She then worked at Technology CAD Division in Intel Corporation until 2005 as Senior CAD Engineer, Staff Engineer, and Senior Staff Engineer. She has authored and co-authored two book chapters and over 50 papers in refereed journals and international conferences. She is responsible for a number of innovative algorithms in high-frequency VLSI CAD, most significant of which is her invention of circuit-print projection translation method as an electromagnetic solution for full-chip analysis, which has been filed for US and Europe patent application as an industry-first full-wave full-chip solution. Her current research interests include high frequency VLSI circuit design and analysis, high-performance VLSI CAD, computational electromagnetics, applied electromagnetics, fast and high-capacity numerical methods, fast time domain analysis, scattering and antenna analysis, microwave and millimeter wave circuits, wireless communication, and bio-electromagnetics.
Dr. Jiao received Best Paper Award from 2004 Intel Design and Test Technology Conference for her work on generic broadband model of high-speed circuits. In 2003, she won Intel Logic Technology Development Divisional Achievement Award in recognition of her excellent work on the industry-leading BroadSpice modeling/simulation capability for designing high-speed microprocessors, packages, and circuit boards. She was also awarded Intel Technology CAD Divisional Achievement Award for the development of innovative full-wave solvers for high frequency IC design. In 2002, she was bestowed by Intel Components Research the Intel Hero Award for the timely and accurate two- and three- dimensional full-wave simulations. She also won Intel Logic Technology Development Team Quality Award for her outstanding contribution to the development of the measurement capability and simulation tools for high frequency on-chip cross-talk. She was the winner of the 2000 Raj Mittra Outstanding Research Award bestowed by University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Jiao is a member of IEEE, IEEE Antennas and Propagation (AP) Society, and IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques (MTT) Society. She served as the reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Technology, Radio Science, IEEE Transactions on Advanced Packaging, Microwave and Optical Technology Letters, IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, IEEE International Conference on Computer Aided Design, and International Conference on Simulation of Semiconductor Processes and Devices.
