Shyh-Chiang Shen received his B.S. and M.S. degrees, both in electrical engineering, from National Taiwan University in 1993 and 1995, respectively. He received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2001. During his graduate study at the University of Illinois, he was involved in the development of low-voltage RF MEMS switches and ion-implanted GaAs MESFET using e-beam direct gate-writing photolithography techniques.
Dr. Shen joined Xindium Technologies, Inc. as a senior processing engineer in June 2001. He developed a proprietary high-performance InP SHBT technology for 40Gb/s OEIC applications and InP-based power HBT technology for wireless communications. In August 2004, he joined the HSIC group at the University of Illinois as a postdoctoral research associate to work on exciting research projects. In January 2005, he joined the Georgia Institute of Technology as an Assistant Professor. Dr. Shen holds 7 awarded U.S. patents in the MEMS and microelectronics areas. His current research is focused on wide bandgap semiconductor microelectronics and optoelectronic devices for high-energy-efficiency applications.
