Chao Qian, M.Sc. has been working as a researcher and PhD student at the "Embedded Systems" group of the University Duisburg-Essen since April 2020. He received his bachelor's degree in Electronic Engineering at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in 2015 with a focus on wireless sensor network. From 2013 to 2017, he was working in a company designing and producing wearable devices and humanoid robots. In 2020, He received his master's degree in "Embedded Systems" with a focus on energy-efficient of embedded AI systems at the University Duisburg-Essen.

The core of his research interests are techniques that allow artificial intelligence(AI) in reconfigurable hardware such as FPGAs that can operate with high energy efficiency and allow to design high-performance hardware with proper software components. A special focus here lies in introducing AI technologies into more areas of the widely applied domain of embedded systems with its limited computing resources and power budget.
