Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Dan Jiao received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in October 2001. She then worked at the Technology CAD Division, Intel Corporation, until September 2005, as a Senior CAD Engineer, Staff Engineer, and Senior Staff Engineer. In September 2005, she joined Purdue University as an Assistant Professor with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, where she became a tenured Associate Professor in 2009, and a Professor in 2013. She has authored three book chapters and over 300 papers in refereed journals and international conferences. At Intel, she was responsible for a number of original algorithms in high-frequency VLSI CAD such as "Electromagnetic solutions for full-chip Analysis" (US patent No. 7,509,247). Many of her developments have been acknowledged as BKM (Best Known Method) CAD tools across Intel. Her current research interests include computational electromagnetics, modeling and simulation of micro- and nano-scale integrated circuits, high-speed VLSI circuit design and analysis, high-performance VLSI CAD, applied electromagnetics, signal and power integrity, fast and high-capacity numerical methods, scattering and antenna analysis, and bio-electromagnetics.
