Chirn Chye Boon (M’09-SM’10) received B.E. (Hons.) (Elect.) in 2000 and Ph.D. (Elect. Eng.) in 2004 from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.In 2005, he joined NTU as a Research Fellow and became an Assistant Professor in the same year. Before that, he was with Advanced RFIC, where he worked as a Senior Engineer. He specializes in the areas of radio frequency (RF) & MM-wave circuits and systems design for Biomedical and Communications applications. He has conceptualized, designed and silicon-verified 40 circuits/chips for biomedical and communication applications. He has coauthored over 70 refereed publications and several patents in the fields of RF and MM-wave. He is a coauthor of the book “Design of CMOS RF Integrated Circuits and Systems” (World Scientific Publishing, 2010).
He serves as a committee member for various conferences. He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Systems. He is a Guest Editor for Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is also in the Editorial Board for Journal on RF and Microwave Computer-Aided Engineering. He is the Programme Director for RF and MM-wave research in the SG$50 millions research centre of excellence, VIRTUS (NTU) since Mar. 2010. He is the Principal/Co-Principal Investigator for research grants of more than SG$4,086,290. He is also one of the key NTU-team members of MIT-NTU joint collaboration project “Low Energy Electronic Systems” which has won the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) International Research Grant (IRG) proposal with a grant total of S$25million. He is a winner of Year-2 Teaching Excellent Award, EEE, NTU.
