Sustainable Computing Laboratory (SCL)

The mission of Sustainable Computing Laboratory is to address reliability and security challenges emerged in problems at device, circuit and system scales. Supported by federal agencies including National Science Foundation and Air Force Research Lab, and industry companies including IBM, Intel, ITRI and Ameren, we focus on three research themes:

Director

Dr. Yiyu Shi

Dr. Yiyu Shi is currently an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and Electrical Engineering (concurrent appointment) at the University of Notre Dame, and the director of Sustainable Computing Lab (SCL). He was an assistant professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Missouri University of Science and Technology from 2010 to 2015, where he was the site founding co-director of the NSF I/UCRC Net-Centric Software and Systems Center.

He received his B.S. degree (with honor) in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 2005, the M.S and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2007 and 2009 respectively.

His current research interests include edge intelligence with focus on biomedical applications, three-dimensional integration, and hardware security. In recognition of his research, eight of his papers have been nominated for the Best Paper Award and one paper have received the Best Paper in Track, all in top conferences (DAC'05, ICCAD'07, ICCD'08, ASPDAC'09, DAC'09, ISPD'13, ICCAD'14, ISPD'15, DAC'16). He was also the recipient of IBM Invention Achievement Award in 2009, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Faculty Invitation Fellowship in 2014 and 2018, Humboldt Research Fellowship, IEEE St. Louis Section Outstanding Educator Award, Academy of Science (St. Louis) Innovation Award, Missouri S&T Faculty Excellence Award, NSF CAREER Award, IEEE Region 5 Outstanding Individual Achievement Award, all in 2014, the Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship in 2015 and 2016, and the Air Force Visiting Faculty Research Fellowship in 2017. He has served on the technical program committee of many international conferences including DAC, ICCAD, DATE, ISPD, ASPDAC and ICCD. He is also a member of IEEE CEDA Publicity Committee and IEEE Smart Grid R&D Committee, deputy editor-in-chief for IEEE TC-VLSI Circuits and Systems Newsletter, and an associate editor of IEEE TCAD, ACM JETC, VLSI Integration, IEEE TCCCPS Newsletter and ACM SIGDA Newsletter. He is a senior member of IEEE.

Postdoctoral Research Associate position in Embeded Systems

Sustainable Computing Laboratory (SCL), University of Notre Dame

The mission of SCL is to address reliability and security challenges emerged in problems at device, circuit and system scales. Supported by federal agencies including National Science Foundation and Air Force Research Lab, and industry companies including IBM, Intel, ITRI and Ameren, our research interests include low-power design, three-dimensional integration, hardware security and renewable energy applications.

The project investigates systematic design of an implantable medical device. It is an interdisciplinary project that combines concepts from several research areas, including but not limited to embedded systems, ASIC design, mechatronics, system security, system validation & verification. As such, prospective applicant should have interest in such interdisciplinary research agenda. The selected candidate will have the opportunity to be part of designing real, physical medical device that will be deployed in China.


Responsibilities:

As part of a project team, you will work alongside Senior Electrical Engineers; supporting the design, debug, validation and optimization of the product.

You will be involved in projects from concept through production.
Perform Microchip MCU Firmware coding.
Optimize RF communication protocol.
Validate hardware and debug issues.

Basic Qualifications:

PhD's degree in Electrical Engineering or related field.
Embedded system projects experience.
Analog and digital electronic design experience.
Schematic design, PCB design and debug skills.
Firmware design in C and Assembly.
Speaking, reading and writing Mandarin Chinese.
