[Biography] [Selected Publications] [Research Projects]


Richard Shi has been a Professor in Electrical Engineering since 2004 at the University of Washington, Seattle, where he joined in 1998. From 1994 to 1998 he worked for Analogy (now part of Synopsys), Rockwell Semiconductor Systems (now Conexant Systems), and the University of Iowa. He received a prestigious Doctoral Prize from the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada and a Governor-General's Silver Medal in 1995 for his PhD Dissertation in Computer Science.

His primary research interests relate to computer-aided design and test of VLSI circuits and systems with the emphasis on analog and deep-submicron circuit modeling, simulation and optimization. His recent research activities include also VLSI implementation of communication systems, three-dimensional VLSI circuits, and radiation-hardened by design technologies. He has supervised 20 PhD students and post doctoral fellows.

Richard Shi was elected to a Fellow of the IEEE in 2005 for his contributions to computer-aided design of mixed-signal integrated circuits. He has received several awards for his research including NSF CAREER Award (1999), Best Paper Awards from IEEE VLSI Test Symposium (1998), IEEE/ACM Design Automation Conference (1999), and SRC Technical Conference (2003), and five Best Paper Award Nominations from respectively ASP-DAC (1995), EuroDAC (1996), ASP-DAC (1998), ICCD (2001), and DATE (2005). He also received a T.D. Lee (1957 Nobel Prize Winner) Physics Award, and was a finalist of the Association for Computing Machinary (ACM) Doctoral Dissertation Award. In 2001, he was nominated by EE undergraduate students for the COE Outstanding Educator Award.

Richard Shi is a key contributor to IEEE std 1076.1-1999 language standard for the description and simulation of mixed-signal circuits and mixed-technology systems (VHDL-AMS). He was the founding Chair of IEEE International Behavioral Modeling and Simulation (BMAS) Symposium. He was a Guest Editor and an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems-II: Analog and Digital Signal Processing. He is currently serving as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems and IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems-II: Express Briefs.
