Educational background and field(s) of interest
Haoming Xin received the B.Sc. degree from Xi’an Jiaotong University, Xi’an, China, in 2013, and the M.Sc. degree from the Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in 2015, where he is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree with the Integrated Circuits Group. His research focus is the design of low-power versatile sensor interface.
How did you get involved in The Phoenix Project?
In the end of my Master study in TU Eindhoven back in 2015, my supervisor (Pieter Harpe who is also a member of The Phoenix Project) mentioned to me this project. The research topic of ultra-low power and versatile sensing fits very well of my personal interest and the desire to learn more knowledge on analog and mixed-signal circuit design. Then I decided to join the Phoenix Project as a PhD student.
What is your motivation to contribute to The Phoenix Project?
The Phoenix Project proposes a fascinating idea to explore unknown environment by using successive generations of wireless sensor swarms. As a first team to do such a research, I believe the outcome of our research would have significant contribution not only to the academia field, but most importantly to the society and people’s every life in the future.
What do you intend to achieve as a member of the project?
I intended to build a highly versatile and ultra-low power sensor frontend, which would allow the Phoenix motes able to gather all kinds of information from the under explored environment with minimum energy consumption.
