Expertise: Power management ICs


Jieyu Liao received her B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from National Sun Yat-Sen University, Taiwan, in 2007, and the M.Sc. degree in Electrical and Control Engineering from National Chiao-Tung University, Taiwan, in 2009. From 2009 to 2013, she was with Mediatek Inc., focusing on switching converter and linear regulator design for mobile devices. From 2013 to 2019, she served at Novatek Microelectronics Corp. Currently she is working as a researcher at the Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory of Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. Her research interests include low-power energy harvester, DC/DC converter, AC/DC converter and voltage regulator.
