Dr. Jerald Yoo received his BSc, MSc and PhD degrees in the Department of Electrical Engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, Korea, in 2002, 2007 and 2010, respectively. He is currently an Assistant Professor at Masdar Institute.
As a chief researcher at the Semiconductor System Laboratory in KAIST, Dr. Yoo developed low-energy Body Area Network (BAN) transceivers and wirelessly powered wearable sensors. His extensive research on Planar-Fabric Circuit Board (P-FCB) and the related circuits has opened the door for wearable, continuous health monitoring system. He also developed an embedded processor for Phase-Change Random Access Memory (PRAM). Dr. Yoo’s areas of expertise include advanced low energy circuit technology for wearable bio signal sensors, SoC design to system realization for wearable healthcare applications and energy-efficient circuit techniques and its chip implementation.
