Xilin Liu obtained his PhD degree from the University of Pennsylvania. Before joining the University of Toronto, he held industrial positions at Qualcomm Inc. in California, where he contributed to the research and development of a series of cutting-edge integrated circuit (IC) products in high-volume production, including the world’s first 5G chipset. He was a visiting scholar at Princeton University in 2014.

Professor Liu’s research focuses on integrated circuits and system design for emerging applications, such as brain-machine interfaces, edge artificial intelligence, and wireless and wireline communication. His team has published papers in prestigious journals like Nature Electronics and the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits (JSSC), and at top conferences such as the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC). He has received numerous Best Paper Awards at renowned international conferences.

Professor Liu is currently a Senior Member of the IEEE. He serves as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems (TBioCAS) and the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Express Briefs (TCAS-II). He was the local co-chair of BioCAS 2023 in Toronto, Canada. He is a committee member of several CASS and SSCS conferences and an SRP committee member of ISSCC.
