Tao Zhang is currently a Hardware Engineer at Google in California, USA. He is working on the high-speed DWDM optical transceiver development of Google Fiber Networks. From 2013 to 2015, he worked as an IC Designer for CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, focusing on the development of the radiation-hardened transmitter ICs for the optical data-transmission links installed in Large Hadron Colliders (LHCs).
Between 2010 and 2012, he was an ASIC Verification Engineer for LSI Corporation in Shanghai, China, and led the analog model development and chip-level verification of mixed-signal ICs for storage products. From 2008 to 2010, he was with VIA Technologies in Beijing, China, and worked as a Circuit Design Engineer for CPU and chipset products. Before this, between 2006 and 2008, he worked for the Wuhan Research Center for Integrated Circuit Design in Wuhan, China, on Power-Management IC development.
Tao has more than 20 papers published in international journals and conference proceedings and 19 patents granted or pending. He is an IEEE member and member of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society and the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society. He serves as a peer reviewer for several IEEE journals and conferences, such as TCAS-II, IET, ISCAS, and NEWCAS.
