Profile

I received my B.S. degree from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1998, and the Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2002. From 1999 to 2002, I was a research assistant in the Beckman Institute at UIUC under the supervision of Prof. Karl Hess, where my work was on the simulation of Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) based on a comprehensive laser diode simulator MINILASE. From 2003 to 2013, I worked firstly as a Research Associate and then as a Consulting Associate Professor in Prof. Robert Dutton’s Stanford TCAD group. My research interests include the design and simulation of novel biosensors, digital/analog electronic devices and optoelectronic devices such as LEDs and laser diodes. The platform of my simulation work is a general Partial Differential Equation solver, PROPHET. I also enjoyed being a lecturer for Stanford undergrad course EE116 “Semiconductor Device Physics” from 2011 to 2013. Currently, I'm a professor in the Dept. of Information Science and Electronic Engineering of Zhejiang University, Hangzhou , China.
