Xin An

Xin An was born in Shaanxi, China. He studied and received the B.Sc degree in microelectronics from Xidian University in Xi’an, China, in 2011. He then came to Germany and continued his studies in Dresden and received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering from Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Germany, in 2016, where he is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree with Chair for Circuit Design and Network Theory. His current research interests include the RF and mm-wave IC design for radar and wireless communication systems.
