Shan X. Wang
Dr. Wang is a professor in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering and jointly in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. He is also with the Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials, and is affiliated with Stanford Bio-X Program. His current research interests lie in magnetic nanotechnologies in general and include bio-magnetic sensing, magnetic microarrays, novel magnetic nanoparticles, magnetoresistive materials and spin electronics, magnetic inductive heads and soft magnetic materials, magnetic integrated inductors, as well as magnetic random access memory (MRAM),. He has published over 100 papers and holds 8 patents (issued and pending) on these subjects. He and Alex Taratorin also published a book titled "Magnetic Information Storage Technology" through Academic Press. Dr. Wang was among the inaugural group of Frederick Terman Faculty Fellows at Stanford University (94-97), and an IEEE Magnetics Society Distinguished Lecturer (2001-2002). He also received an IBM Partnership Award in 1999, and was selected to the CUSPEA program organized by Nobel Laureate T. D. Lee in 1986. Dr. 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.
