He was a Visiting Professor at City University of Hong Kong, and at Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan, and Li K. T. Honorary Chair Professor at National Central University.[1]

He is the author and co-author of seven books and monographs, and over 180 technical papers.[1][2] His research interests include computer-aided design of VLSI circuits, real-time systems, computer-aided instruction, combinatorial optimization, and discrete mathematics.

He is a member of Academia Sinica,[3] a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers,[1] and a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery.[4]

In 2004, the University of Macau awarded him an honorary doctorate.[1]
