My research interests concentrate on integrated nano-systems exploiting innovative circuit/device co-design science and technologies, to develop "device-aware" circuits and systems that naturally utilize essential properties of emerging nano materials and devices, through interdisciplinary technologies and studies on semiconductor physics, integrated circuit engineering, information science, nonlinear theory and its applications, neural science, etc. For example, I am handling1) emerging research architectures for nano CMOS, single electron/molecule devices, emerging memory devices (memristors), etc., 2) emerging circuit/device co-design architectures for deep learning, neuromorphic computing, nonlinear analog computing, beyond Neumann computing, 3) functional imaging and novel image processing as well as its integrated circuit systems, and so on.
