About Me

Cheng Li received the B.Eng degree in Microelectronic from Sun Yat-Sen University (SYSU), Guangzhou, China, in 2014, and M.Sc. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Macau, Macau, China, in 2018. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, Davis (UCDavis), CA, USA.

He was with the State key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-signal VLSI (AMSV), University of Macau, during Aug. 2014-Jun. 2018, where his research interest included analog and mixed-signal IC design, with a focus on the power management in high-speed SAR ADC design, such as Low-dropout regulator (LDO) and reference buffer.

His current research interest is RF/mmWave integrated circuit design.
