Sijun Du received the B.Sc. degree (hons.) in Electronic Engineering from Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC), Paris, France, in 2011, and the M.Sc. degree (distinction) in Electrical & Electronic Engineering from Imperial College London, UK, in 2012. From 2012 to 2013, he was with the Lip6 laboratory at Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC). From 2013 to 2014, he was a digital IC design engineer in Shanghai, China. In October 2014, he joined the University of Cambridge, UK, for Ph.D. research, where he used less than three year to submit his thesis. In 2016, he did a three-month internship in the R&D department at Qualcomm Inc., San Diego, CA, USA. In 2018, he was a visiting scholar at Fudan University, China, for three months. From 2018 to 2020, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC), University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA. He has authored and co-authored more than 40 peer-reviewed technical papers and 3 patents.
In 2020, he joined the Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory, Department of Microelectronics, Delft University of Technology, where he is now an Assistant Professor (tenure-track). His current research is focused on energy-efficient integrated circuits and systems, including energy harvesting, wireless power transfer, power management ICs, analog/digital signal processing and low-power communications used in autonomous wireless sensors for Internet of Things (IoT), wearable electronics, biomedical devices and microrobots.
