About Professor Wang:

Dr. Shan X. Wang currently serves as the director of the Stanford Center for Magnetic Nanotechnology and a Professor of Materials Science & Engineering, jointly of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, and by courtesy, a Professor of Radiology at Stanford School of Medicine. He is a Co-PI of the Stanford-led Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence and Translation (CCNE-T). He is also with the Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials, and is affiliated with Air Force MURI Program, Stanford Bio-X Program, Cancer Institute and Cardiovascular Institute. His research interests lie in magnetic nanotechnologies and information storage in general and include magnetic biochips, in vitro diagnostics, cell sorting, magnetic nanoparticles, nano-patterning, spin electronic materials and sensors, magnetic inductive heads, as well as magnetic integrated inductors and transformers. He has published over 210 papers, and holds 38 patents (issued and pending) on these subjects. Dr. Wang contributed two books and four book chapters on magnetic biochip, nanoparticles, information storage, and embedded inductors, respectively, and gave more than 100 invited presentations in major scientific conferences and seminars around the globe, and his work received media coverage from ABC TV, Economist, San Jose Mercury News, Technology Review, EE Times, ScienceWatch, People's Daily and the like. Dr. Wang was an inaugural Frederick Terman Faculty Fellow at Stanford University (94-97), an IEEE Magnetics Society Distinguished Lecturer (2001-2002), and was elected an IEEE Fellow (2009) and American Physical Society (APS) Fellow (2012). He also received the Gates Foundation Grand Challenge Explorations Award (2010), the Obducat Prize (2007-8), a National Academies Keck Futures Initiative Award (2006), an IBM Partnership Award (1999), and was selected to the CUSPEA program organized by Nobel Laureate T. D. Lee in 1986. His students have won BMEidea Competition 1st Prize, IEEE President's Change the World Competition 1st Prize (2009), and IEDM Best Student Paper award (2006). Prof. Wang received the B.S. degree in physics from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1986, the M.S. in physics from Iowa State University in 1988, and the Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) at Pittsburgh in 1993.
