Ping Gui is currently a Full Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and is the founder and director of the Integrated Circuits and Systems Lab at Lyle School of SMU. Her primary research interests are analog, mixed-signal, and digital IC for a variety of applications, including high-speed ADC/DACs, high-speed wireless and wireline communications, low-power biomedical circuits, circuits and systems for extreme and harsh environments, and hardware security. Prof. Gui has more than 130 peer reviewed journal and conference publications. She has been a senior member of IEEE since 2009, and a recipient of CERN Scientific Associate Award (2008-2011), IEEE Outstanding Service Award (2011), and the SMU Gerald J. Ford Research Fellowship Award(2015). Prof. Gui has served and continues to serve on the technical program committee for internationally recognized conferences including IEEE RFIC (2015-2020), CICC (2017-2021), and ISSCC (2021-2023).
