Fei Yuan was born in the city of Changzhou, Jiangsu, China. He received B.Eng. degree in Electrical Engineering from Shandong University, Jinan, China in 1985, M.A.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering, and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada in 1995 and 1999, respectively. During 1985-1989, he was a lecturer in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Changzhou Institute of Technology, Jiangsu, China where he developed microprocessor process control systems for chemical processes. He was a Visiting Professor at Humber College of Applied Arts and Technology, Toronto, ON, Canada, and Lambton College of Applied Arts and Technology, Sarnia, ON, Canada in 1989 where he worked on Honeywell TDC-3000 total distributed control systems. He was with Paton Controls Limited, Sarnia, ON, Canada as a Controls Engineer during 1989 - 1994 where he designed Honeywell, Triconex, Modicon, and Allen-Bradley distributed process control systems and programmable logic controllers for petrochemical, fertilizer, and food processes worldwide. He joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University), Toronto, Canada as an Assistant Professor in 1999 and was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor with Early Tenure in 2003 and Full Professor in 2008. Dr. Yuan served as Associate Chair for Undergraduate Programs and Faculty Affairs in 2002-2006 and the Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2010-2015, the Director of Quality Assurance, Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science in 2015-2021 where he played a critical role in the successful accreditation of eight engineering programs offered by the Faculty with the highest rating from the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board, and various university governing bodies including university's Academic Standard Committee.

Dr. Yuan is the author of Injection-Locking in Mixed-Mode Signal Processing (Springer, 2019), the editor of Low-Power Circuits for Emerging Applications in Communications, Computing and Sensing (CRC Press, 2018), the editor and a lead co-author of CMOS Time-Mode Circuits : Principles and Applications (CRC Press, 2015), the author of CMOS Circuits for Passive Wireless Microsystems (Springer, 2010), CMOS Active Inductors and Transformers : Principle, Implementation, and Applications (Springer, 2008), CMOS Current-Mode Circuits for Data Communications (Springer, 2006) and the lead co-author of Computer Methods for Analysis of Mixed-Mode Switching Circuits (Kluwer Academic, 2004). He is also the author / coauthor of several book chapters and over 250 research papers in refereed international journals and conference proceedings. Dr. Yuan is a co-recipient of the Best Student Paper Award at 2021 IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (Soul, Korean), and a co-recipient of 2nd Place Award in 2007 National Microelectronic Design Competition (TEXPO'2007, Ottawa). Dr. Yuan was awarded the Dean's Teaching Award in 2017, the Ryerson Research Chair award in 2005, the Dean's Research Award in 2004, Doctoral Scholarship (PGS-B) from the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada in 1997-1998, the Teaching Excellence Award from Changzhou Institute of Technology in 1988, and the Science and Technology Innovation Award from Changzhou Municipal government in 1988. Dr. Yuan is a Fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and a registered professional engineer in the province of Ontario, Canada.
