Bongjin received PhD degree from the University of Minnesota in 2014. After PhD, He worked on design techniques and methodologies for communication circuits and microarchitectures at Rambus and Stanford University as a senior staff and a postdoctoral research fellow. After working as an assistant professor at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore for three years (from 2017 to 2020), he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

His research team develops domain/application-specific VLSI circuits and system solutions to solve computationally intensive problems in the real world and accelerate computing and communication. Target domains and applications include, but are not limited to, artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, biology, and high-energy physics.

He received the NSF CAREER Award, the Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship Award, and the ISLPED International Low Power Design Contest Award. His research works have been published in 60+ peer-reviewed major conferences and journals, such as the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), Symposium on VLSI Technology and Circuits (VLSI), Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC), European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC), and Journal of Solid-State Circuits (JSSC). He has served as a technical program committee of the Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC), the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence Circuits and Systems (AICAS), and the Design Automation Conference (DAC). He has also served as a Guest Editor of the IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems (JETCAS) and is currently an Associate Editor of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Letter (SSC-L).
