    Tong Zhang Tong Zhang received bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from Southeast University, Nanjing, China in 2011. From September 2011, he joined University of Washington as a PHD student. For the past few years, he worked on multiple projects including self-interference cancellation techniques for next generation FDD/Full-Duplex radios and mmWave wideband systems. From July 2013 to March 2014, he interned in Qualcomm Atheros, San Jose, focusing on designing wideband PVT-compensated RF/mmWave quadrature generator. From April 2015 to July 2015, he interned in Google Incorporated, Mountain View, designing analog circuits. He was a recipient of Analog Device Outstanding Student Designer Award (2015) and Solid-State Society Pre-doctoral Achievement Award (2016).

    Eric Pepin Eric Pepin received his BSEE from the University of Washington (UW) in 2012, and decided to stay at UW, as well as with the FAST Lab, to pursue his MSEE/Ph.D. in electrical engineering. Eric’s interests are in interfacing technologies between nature and electronics, specifically those involving analog/mixed- signal integrated circuits (ICs), biomedical instrumentation, and digital signal processing. Currently, Eric is working on a project that’s a collaborative effort between the FAST Lab and the multidisciplinary NSF Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE), also here at UW. Specifically, the project is concerned with developing a standard-CMOS, low-power neural stimulator IC for applications in brain- computer interfaces and CSNE test-bed equipment.

    As an undergraduate, Eric contributed to several research projects within the Sensors, Energy, and Automation Lab (SEAL) at UW, participated in NASA SURP (UW, Summer 2011), and was named a Mary Gates Research Scholar (UW, Winter/Spring 2012).

    Andrew Chen Andrew joined University of Washington in September 2009, where he was working with Prof. David Allstot on low power analog and mixed signal designs for biomedical applications. After receiving a master’s degree in EE, he joined Mobile and Wireless group at Broadcom Corp, Santa Clara, CA, where he worked on efficient power amplifier designs for Bluetooth application. After two years in industry, Andrew returned to UW in 2013 to pursue a PhD degree. His research interests include low power circuit design techniques, highly efficient transceiver design, and mm-wave phased array system design.
