Singapore Institute for Neurotechnology (SINAPSE)
National University of Singapore

Distinguished Lecturer, IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society




Jerald Yoo received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Department of Electrical Engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, Korea, in 2002, 2007, and 2010, respectively.

From 2010 to 2016, he was with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Masdar Institute, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, where he was an Associate Professor. From 2010 to 2011, he was also with the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a visiting scholar. Since 2017, he has been with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National University of Singapore, Singapore, where he is currently an Associate Professor. He has pioneered research on low-energy body-area-network (BAN) transceivers and wearable body sensor network using planar-fashionable circuit board for continuous health monitoring system. He has authored book chapters in Biomedical CMOS ICs (Springer, 2010) and in Enabling the Internet of Things - From Circuits to Networks (Springer, 2017). His current research interests include low-energy circuit technology for wearable bio signal sensors, flexible circuit board platform, BAN transceivers, ASIC for piezoelectric Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers (pMUT) and System-on-Chip (SoC) design to system realization for wearable healthcare applications.

Dr. Yoo is an IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS) Distinguished Lecturer. He is the recipient or a co-recipient of several awards: the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS) 2015 Best Paper Award (BioCAS Track), ISCAS 2015 Runner-Up Best Student Paper Award, the Masdar Institute Best Research Award in 2015 and the IEEE Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference (A-SSCC) Outstanding Design Award (2005). He was the Vice Chair of IEEE SSCS United Arab Emirates (UAE) Chapter. Currently, he serves as a Technical Program Committee Member of the IEEE A-SSCC, IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC), and the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) Student Research Preview (SRP). He is also an Analog Signal Processing Technical Committee Member of IEEE Circuits and Systems Society. He is a senior member of IEEE.
