My name is Ye-Sheng Kuo, I'm a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Michigan in the Electrical Engineering department. I work with Professor Prabal Dutta and my research focuses on building a low-power, low-cost and portable software-defined radio (SDR) that enables cross layer low-power wireless research, a novel indoor positioning system using visible light and mobile phone that achieves (3D) decimeter level location accuracy with orientation information, and ultra low-power chip-to-chip interconnect that is optimized for energy-constraint systems.
