Short Bio

Who am I?

My name is Xinfei Guo, It pronounces as "SHIN-fay GWOH"

Where I am from?

I was born and raised in a small town in city of Ulanqab, China. It lies in northern China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, which is close to the capital Beijing. I really enjoy the snow there and very clean air. More pictures of my hometown HERE. Here is a presentation I made on Chinese culture and customs.

What' s my experience?

I spent four years there studying at Xidian University, where I met some of my best friends in my life. In four years college life, I was fascinated by the electronics stuff and determined to go to America to study Electrical Engineering. In 2010, I came to Florida, US and started my Master in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Florida,  where sports program is very strong. I am so proud of being a Florida  gator bleeding orange and blue. I got my master degree in 2012 and  started to think about my life for the future five years, I ended up with the  University of Virginia, where I am enjoying life now. This is a great  university founded by Mr. Thomas Jefferson, who was the third president of the state and won the respect of the whole world. Currently, I enjoy what I am doing and step to a fully new stage of my life.

What's my hobby out of class and research?

I like traveling and have been to many cities in China and most of the states in US with my friends. Like in China, we visited Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an, Baotou,.....
In US, I visited Orlando, New York City, Boston, Atlanta,Washington D.C, Phili, Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Austin, Utah, San Francisco, San Jose, Arizona, Texas, Tennesse, North Carolina, Virginia, Denver...

Also I am a sports fan. I like watching NCAA football and basketball games, I am a FLORIDA GATOR and VIRGINIA CAVALIER Fan. I like watching NBA, I am also a OKC fan. In terms of NFL, I am a Denver Broncos fan. 

I like hiking and reading. Getting close to nature makes me happy and enjoyable.

Also I like live music and collecting CDs and albums during travel. Please refer to my Music Page and concert lists Here.

IEEE Style Bio,

Xinfei Guo (S '12) received his B.S. degree in Electronic Materials and Devices in 2010 from Xidian University, China and his M.SEE degree in 2012 from the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL. Since 2012, he joined HPLP lab and started his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA. He has a broad interest in low power and robust circuit design, microarchitecture and cross-layer reliability. His current research interests include wearout and accelerated recovery, wearout- and power-aware codesign methodology, low power design and near-threshold computing. During his PhD, he has collaborated with Intel, AMD, IBM and many other research groups.
