Euisik Yoon received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electronics engineering from Seoul National University in 1982 and 1984, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1990.

From 1990 to 1994 he worked for the Fairchild Research Center of the National Semiconductor Corp. in Santa Clara, CA, where he engaged in researching deep submicron CMOS integration and advanced gate dielectrics. From 1994 to 1996 he was a Member of the Technical Staff at Silicon Graphics Inc. in Mountain View, CA, where he worked on the design of the MIPS microprocessor R4300i and the RCP 3-D graphic coprocessor. He took faculty positions in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in Daejon, Korea (1996-2005) and in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN (2005-2008), respectively. During the academic year of 2000-2001, he was a Visiting Faculty at Agilent Laboratory, Palo Alto, CA. In 2008, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, where he is a Professor and the Director of the Solid-State Electronics Laboratory and the Director of Lurie Nanofabrication Facility. His research interests are in MEMS, integrated microsystems, and VLSI circuit design.

Dr. Yoon was the co-recipient of the Student Paper Award at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium in 1999 and 2000, respectively. He has served on various Technical Program Committees including the Microprocesses and Nanotechnology Conference (1998), the International Sensor Conference (2001), the IEEE Asia-Pacific Conference on Advanced System Integrated Circuits (2001-2002), the International Conference on Solid-State Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems (Transducers) (2003, 2005), the IEEE International Electron Device Meeting (2006-2008) and the IEEE International Conference on Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (2006, 2009-2010). He also served on the IEEE International Solid-State Circuit Conference program committee (2003-2007) and was a general chair of International Symposium on Bio Micro & Nanosystems (2005).
