Donald Y.C. Lie (S’86–M’87–SM’00) received his B.S.E.E. degree from the National Taiwan University in 1987, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering (minor in applied physics) from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Pasadena, in 1990 and 1995, respectively. He has held technical and managerial positions at companies such as Rockwell International, Silicon-Wave (now Qualcomm), IBM, Microtune Inc., SYS Technologies, and Dynamic Research Corporation (DRC). He is currently the Keh-Shew Lu Regents Chair Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas, and also an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Surgery, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC). He is instrumental in bringing in multi-million dollars research funding and also designed real-world commercial communication products sold internationally. He has been a Visiting Lecturer to the ECE Department, University of California, San Diego (UCSD) since 2002 where he taught upper-division and graduate-level classes and affiliated with UCSD’s Center of Wireless Communications (CWC) and co-supervised Ph.D. students. Dr. Lie has been serving on the Executive Committee of the IEEE Bipolar/BiCMOS Circuits and Technology Meeting (BCTM), IEEE SiRF, IEEE MWSCAS, IEEE TSWMCS, and also serving on various TPC for IEEE RFIC Symp., IEEE VLSI-DAT, IEEE PAWR, IEEE LiSSA, etc. He has received numerous awards from DRC, IBM, Rockwell, and US NAVY SPAWAR SSC, and delivered plenary talks, short courses, invited talks, workshops at various conferences, universities and companies. He and his students have won several Best Graduate Student Paper Awards and Best Paper Awards in international conferences in 1994, 1995, 2006, 2008 (twice), 2010 (twice), 2011, and 2012. Dr. Lie is serving as an Associate Editor of IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters (MWCL), the Area Editor-in-Chief for the InternationalJournal on Wireless and Optical Communications and also on the Editorial Board for the i-manager’s Journal on Electrical Engineering. He was a Guest Editor of IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits (JSSC) in 2009, the Special Topic Editor for IEEE MWCL in 2012, and also has served as a reviewer for many journals and funding agencies. He has consulted for several IC design companies, a business trial law firm, and a research institute. He has authored/coauthored about 140 peer-reviewed technical papers and book chapters and holds five U.S. patents. His research interests are: (1) low-power RF/Analog IC and System-on-a-Chip (SoC) design and test; and (2) interdisciplinary research on medical electronics, biosensors, biosignal processing, and history of modern science vs. Christianity.
