Bio
Evangeline Young received her B.Sc. and M.Phil. degree in Computer Science from The Chinese University of Hong Kong and received her Ph.D. degree from The University of Texas at Austin in 1999. BTW, she accepted Jesus on Oct 20, 1996. She joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in the Chinese University of Hong Kong as an assistant professor in 1999 and is now a professor in the same department. Her research interests include CAD of VLSI circuits, algorithms and combinatorial optimization. She has served in the program committees of DAC, ICCAD, ASP-DAC, ISPD, GLSVLSI, DATE and the editorial boards of IEEE TCAD, ACM TODAES and Integration, the VLSI Journal. Most recently, her group won the championships in the 2016 CAD Contest at ICCAD on NP3: Non-exact Projective NPNP Boolean Matching and 2015 CAD Contest at ICCAD on 3D-ICON: 3D Interlayer Cooling Optimized Network.. They also won the second runner up in the 2016 ISPD Routability-Driven FPGA Placement Contest, 2015 CAD Contest at ICCAD on Incremental Timing-driven Placement and the 2015 ISPD Detailed Routing-driven Placement Contest. In 2013, her group won the championships in the 2013 CAD Contest at ICCAD on both Placement Finishing and Mask Optimization.(CUHK has historically won ALL the championships in this contest!) In 2012, her group had won the second place in 2012 CAD Contest at ICCAD on Design Hierarchy Aware Routability-driven Placement. In the past, they had also won the championship in the ISPD 2011 Routability-Driven Placement Contest (EETimes Coverage), the second place in the DAC 2012 Routability-Driven Placement Contest and the first runner-up in the ISPD 2010 High Performance Clock Network Synthesis Contest (EETimes Coverage).
