Biography

SungWon Chung is Research Associate in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA, USA. For five years prior to the present appointment, he had held R&D positions in Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories as Consultant, KITEL Company as Member of Technical Staff, MIT Microsystems Technology Laboratories as Postdoctoral Associate, and Intersil Corporation as Mixed-Signal Design Engineer Intern.

His research interests are in the design of integrated circuits and nanodevices, which exploit diverse wave-matter interactions, into a system with innovative architectures and signal processing techniques for nonideality correction. He has worked on GaN HEMT, SiGe HBT, SOI CMOS devices and circuits with adaptive digital predistortion for analog, mixed-signal, microwave, and optical applications.

Dr. Chung has co-authored over 50 publications. His work on energy-efficient wireless transmitter was commercialized by Eta Devices (a start-up acquired by Nokia) and recognized with 2015 Technology Pioneers Award by World Economic Forum in Geneva, Switzerland. He was nominated for 2011 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium Best Student Paper Award, and he is a co-recipient of 2011 IEEE Radio and Wireless Week Best Student Paper Award. He was awarded Bell Labs Prize for his work on large-scale nanophotonic phased arrays for 3D imaging, sensing, and communication, which was demonstrated in 2017 IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference.
