Biography

Tzi-Dar Chiueh was born in Taipei, Taiwan in 1960. In 1983, he received the B.S.E.E. degree from the National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan.  He also received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California, in 1986 and 1989, respectively.

Since 1989, he has been at the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University, where he is presently a Professor. In 2004-2007, he served as the Director of the Graduate Institute of Electronics Engineering in the same university. He has held visiting positions at ETH Zurich Switzerland in 2000-2001 and at State University of New York at Stony Brook in 2003-2004. His research interests include IC design for digital communication systems and signal processing for bio-medical systems. Since November 2010, he has become the Director General of the National Chip Implementation Center (www.cic.org.tw) in Hsinchu, Taiwan.

Prof. Chiueh has received the Acer Longtern Award 11 times and the Golden Silicon Award in 2002, 2005, 2007, and 2009. His teaching efforts were recognized six times by the Teaching Excellence Award from NTU in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2010. Prof. Chiueh was the recipient of the Outstanding Research Award from National Science Council, Taiwan in 2004–2007. In 2005, he received the Outstanding Electrical Engineering Professor from the Chinese Institute of Electrical Engineers (Taiwan), and was awarded the Himax Chair Professorship at NTU in 2006. In 2009, he received the Outstanding Industry Contribution Award from the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwan.
