    College: Engineering Department: Electrical and Computer Engineering
    Secondary Department: Computer Science
    Title: Assistant Professor
    Office: 1036 Phone: 3123550311
    Webpage: http://ece.uic.edu/~wenjing
    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    My research interests lie in the crosscut domain of computer engineering and computer science.

    Specifically, I am interested in the following:

    - reliability issues (what to do with failures of computer components);

    - Computer Aided Design (algorithms and flows to design CPU and computer systems);

    - novel computation paradigms in emerging nanoelectronic systems (what are the implications of CMOS transistors further shrinking into nano-scale realm, where defects and faults become a "normal assumption"?);

    - defect and fault tolerant techniques for highly unreliable systems;

    - VLSI test and design for test of digital systems (how to reduce the cost of performing tests, and how to make it possible to test with low cost at the design stage of digital systems).

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 10

    Qualifications of a Student:
    preferred major: CE or CS
    prerequisite classes and skills: digital logic, computer organization, programming; a good understanding in discrete math and algorithms, good skills of programming.
