Eric Yun Liang
Former Researcher
 

Research Scientist at ADSC, 2010-2012; now a professor at Peking University, China.

 

Yun (Eric) Liang was a Research Scientist with the Advanced Digital Sciences Center (ADSC). He obtained his B.S. in Software Engineering from Tongji University, Shanghai, in 2004, and his Ph.D. in computer science from the National University of Singapore in 2010. He has published 20 research papers in the top conferences and journals on embedded systems, computer architecture, real-time systems, and hardware, such as DAC, FCCM, CASES, RTSS, IPDPS, CODES+ISSS, DATE, and FPT. His work has received the Best Paper Award of FCCM 2011 and Best Paper Award nominations from DAC 2012, FPT 2011, and CODES+ISSS 2008.
