Chuan Wang is currently an assistant professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan State University. He received a B.S. in Microelectronics from Peking University in 2005 and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California in 2011. From 2011 to 2013, he worked as a postdoctoral scholar in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at University of California, Berkeley with a joint appointment in the Materials Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Professor Wang pioneered in the field of using solution-processed semiconducting carbon nanotube networks and CVD-grown horizontally aligned carbon nanotubes for high-performance thin-film transistors, integrated circuits, display electronics, and RF electronics. His current focus areas of research include flexible electronics, stretchable electronics, roll-to-roll printed electronics, and RF electronics using various types of nanomaterials including carbon nanotubes, graphene, 2D III-V nanomembranes, and layered transition metal dichalcogenides.
Professor Wang has authored and co-authored 34 journal papers (total impact factors: 373.5, citations: 1089, h-index: 19), most of which are published in high impact journals including Nature Materials, Nature Communications, Chemical Society Reviews, Nano Letters, ACS Nano, and Advanced Materials. His work has also been reported by Nature, Science, Technology Review, Time, abc News, CNET, EE Times, nanotechweb.org, phys.org, ScienceDaily, and many more. He has won many awards including Chinese government scholarship for outstanding self-financed students studying abroad, USC Ming Hiesh Institute PhD scholar award, USC EE department best paper award, USC Academic Achievement Award, and Phi Tau Phi scholastic honor society scholarship. He is a member of MRS and APS and frequently serves as the reviewer for Nano Letters, ACS Nano, Nano Research, Nanoscale, IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology, Nanoscale Research Letters, Proceedings of the Royal Society A, Materials, Applied Physics A, Journal of Nanomaterials, and Frontiers of Optoelectronics.
