Biographical Information

Liming Gao received Dr.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering from Technical University Munich, Munich, Germany in 2004. In 2004, he was with the Infineon Research Center(former Siemens Semiconductor), Munich, Germany. While at Infineon, he worked on semiconductor reliability, product and technology analysis, and failure analysis for advanced CMOS ICs. He held a position of project leader in the field of novel analysis methods for the semiconductor products from 2005 to 2009. Since September 2009, he has been an associate professor in Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai. His research interests are semiconductor reliability, testing and failure analysis. His present research covers a broad range of topics, including analysis of advanced ICs products, reliability and testing of novel devices, and failure analysis of future devices and processing technologies. He has published more than 30 journal and conference papers. He is a member of IEEE.
