Dr. Lee received the B.S. degree from National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), Hsinchu, Taiwan, in 1982, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Katholieke University Leuven (KUL), Leuven, Belgium, in 1986 and 1990, respectively, all in electrical engineering.
From 1986 to 1990, he was with IMEC/VSDM, Belgium, working in the area of architecture synthesis for DSP. In February 1991, he joined the department of electronics engineering and from 2003-2006, he was the chairman. He was the dean of office of research and development in 2007-2010, National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), Hsinchu, Taiwan. During 2000-2003, he was the director of National CHIP Implementation Center, Taiwan. During 2003-2005, he was the coordinator of Microelectronics Program of Engineering Division, NSC, Taiwan. During 2011-2015, he serves as Co-Program Director of National Program of Intelligent Electronic (NPIE). Currently, he is Member of ERB under Executive Yuan, Taiwan, and Professor of the department of electronics engineering, NCTU. His research interests mainly include VLSI algorithms and architectures for high-throughput DSP applications. He is also active in various aspects of micro sensing, low-power system-on-chip, and data-driven applications.
Dr. Lee used to serve as IEEE ASSCC TPC member, IEEE VLSI Symposium JFE Circuits Program Committee member, and IEEE TCAS-II Associate Editor. He was the program committee member of IEEE ISSCC in 2004–2006, DATE TPC member in 2006-2007, and the Past-Chair of Taipei Chapter of IEEE Circuits and Systems (CAS) Society. He received the Award of Outstanding on Technology Licensing in 2007, 2008 from National Science Council, and 2009 from Ministry of Economic Affairs. In 2009, he received the Outstanding Research Award from National Science Council. He holds more than 50 patents and is the co-founder of 4 start-ups related to data-driven solutions for emerging health-care and medi-care business segments.
