Biography

Dr. Chuan Wang joined Michigan State University as an assistant professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2013, where he founded the Flexible Electronics Group. Prior to joining MSU, 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. Dr. Wang’s PhD and Postdoc research 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: 1) Flexible and stretchable electronics for displaying, sensing, and energy harvesting applications; 2) Ink formulation and printing process for low-cost, scalable microfabrication of flexible and stretchable electronics; and 3) High-performance nanoelectronics and optoelectronics using 2-dimensional semiconductors.
