Email: jordancwp AT


I am a Staff R&D Engineer in the emulator back-end team of UniVista. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2019. My advisor was Prof. Evangeline F.Y. Young. Previously, I obtained my bachelor degree in Computer Science and Technology from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, in 2015.

During my Ph.D., I mainly focus on physical design but also have experience in logic synthesis and applying ML in EDA. I am one of the main contributors of several state-of-the-art P&R tools and have won top3 in EDA contests many times.

During my time in the industry, I have broad experience in logic synthesis, placement, and routing. I have been the architect/major contributor of several key features/tools in the EDA chain, which are verified by industry-level designs.
