About me

Wujie Wen got his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Pittsburgh in 2015, under the supervision of Professor Yiran Chen. He earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in electronic engineering from the Beijing Jiaotong University, Beijing, China, and Tsinghua University Tsinghua University, Beijing, in 2006 and 2010, respectively. Before he joined ECE department of Florida International University, he also worked with Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Inc. and Broadcom, Inc. for various engineer and intern positions. His current research interests span Neuromorphic computing, deep learning hardware acceleration and deep learning security, emerging memory, VLSI design and computer architecture. Dr. Wen was the recipient of the 49th Design Automation Conference (DAC2012) A. Richard Newton Graduate Scholarship, the most prestigious Ph.D. scholarship ($24,000, one awardee per year) in EDA society, 2014 Bronze Medal of ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation (SIGDA) student research competition (SRC) in International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD), 2014 DAC best paper candidate nomination, 2015 DAC Ph.D. forum best poster presentation , 2016 DATE best paper candidate nomination and 2018 ASP-DAC best paper candidate nomination. His research is sponsored by NSF, The Florida Center for Cybersecurity (FC2) etc.
