Autobiography
Yu-Min Lee received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in communication engineering from the National Chiao-Tung University, Taiwan, in 1991 and 1993, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2003. In 2003, he joined the Faculty of National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan, where he currently holds a position as Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research interests include computer-aided design on VLSI circuits with emphases on interconnect analysis and optimization, and circuit/thermal/electro-thermal simulation. Dr. Lee is a recipient of the ISPD Best Paper Award in 2003 and the ASP-DAC Best Papaer Award in 2013.
