C. Patrick Yue (S’93–M’98–SM’05–F’15) received the B.S. degree in Electronic and Computer Engineering (Highest Hons.) from the University of Texas at Austin in 1992, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1994 and 1998, respectively. 

Based on his Ph.D. thesis work, he co-founded Atheros Communications in 1998 and contributed to the development and deployment of the world's first IEEE802.11a CMOS Wi-Fi transceiver system-on-chip (SoC). In 2002, he joined Aeluros to work on CMOS high-speed PHY/SerDes IC design and signal integrity issues in chip packaging. Between 2001 and 2003, while working at the start-ups, he served as a Consulting Assistant Professor at Stanford in the EE Department focusing on research in the area of high-frequency CMOS IC design and RF device modeling. In 2003, he joined Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. In 2006, he moved to the University of California, Santa Barbara and was promoted to full professor in 2010. Since 2011, he has been a Professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering. From 2014 to 2015, he served as the first Associate Provost for Knowledge Transfer at HKUST. In 2016, he took a sabbatical leave from HKUST to Tsinghua University, Beijing, PRC as a Visiting Chair Professor in the Institute of Microelectronics. In 2017, he founded LiPHY Communications to commercialize visible light communication (VLC) technology for smart building and IoT market. Currently, he is the Director of the HKUST Integrated Circuit Design Center (ICDC), the Optical Wireless Lab (OWL), and the HKUST-Qualcomm Joint Innovation and Research Lab. His research interest includes optical wireless physical layer circuits and systems, high-speed wireline communication SoC, millimeter-wave communication and sensing circuits, indoor positioning and image processing technologies for robotic applications, and edge computing accelerator design for IoT applications.
