Research work

My research interests include nano-/ microelectromechanical systems (NEMS/MEMS), nanoelectronic devices, and next-generation IC circuits.

Our research lab, with English-friendly academic environment, now has several international Ph.D. students and Postdoc Fellows. We established long-term research collaboration with Harvard, U. of Cambridge, MIT, Stanford, UIUC, UC Berkeley, Cornell, UCLA, Columbia,and USC. International students are welcome to join our research team for Master and Doctoral Degrees.

In the last 8 years, we have successfully trained many outstanding graduates, who obtained fellowships at prestigous US universities for doctoral degrees, including Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of California at Davis, University of Southern California, etc.

Outstanding previous graduates continue their higher education at Ivy League university for Ph.D. degrees or are working at well-known enterprises such as Intel, IBM, AMD, Motorola, Apple, China Mobile, China Telecom, etc.
