Welcome to my personal website!
I am Wei Song (宋威), an Associate Professor (副研究员) at the Institute of Information Engineering (信息工程研究所) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (中国科学院).
I spent most of my childhood in Wuhan, China. Just before the new year's eve of 1999, I moved to Beijing with my parents. One year later, I entered Beijing University of Technology studying electornic control systems. Both my B.S.EE and M.S.EE degrees were obtained from there in 2005 and 2008 respectively. In the second year of my Master, I recevied a full scholarship from the University of Manchester and went to Manchester studying asynchronous on-chip networks for multi-processor systems. A Ph.D. degree was awarded in 2011 and I worked as a Research Associate (postdoc) for another three years. In between November of 2014 and October of 2017, I worked as a Research Associate (postdoc) for the lowRISC project in the Computer Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. Starting from November 2017, I returned China and became a Associated Research in the Institute of Information Engineering.
My current research areas are most on improving the security of computer systems with the support form new hardware features. Other more general research interests include network-on-chips, asynchronous circuits, reconfigurable circuits, logic synthesis, embedded system, computer architecture and software designs.
