Chenyun Pan received a B.S. in microelectronics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (Shanghai, China) in 2010 and M.S. and Ph.D. in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Georgia Institute of Technology in 2013 and 2015, respectively. In the summer of 2014 and spring of 2015, he was a researcher at IMEC in Leuven, Belgium, focusing on emerging graphene interconnects and deeply scaled vertical FETs. From 2015 to 2018, he was a Research Scientist in the School of ECE at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Dr. Pan's research interest covers the modeling and optimization of energy-efficient Boolean and non-Boolean computing systems using various emerging beyond-CMOS devices, interconnects, and memory technologies. The applications include high-performance low-power circuits for deep learning applications, non-volatile in-memory computing system, and hardware security circuits. He has published more than 30 peer-reviewed IEEE journal and conference papers. He is the recipient of two Best Paper awards in the IEEE International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design and IEEE Conference on IC Design and Technology, and 2018 Research Spotlight Award in the School of ECE at Georgia Tech.

Primary Research Interests:
  • Neuromorphic Circuit Design
  • Nonvolatile Memory Design
  • Beyond-CMOS Nanoelectronic Devices and Interconnects Exploration
  • VLSI System Design
  • Hardware Security

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
