Associate Professor, School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering
In 2016, Chao Wang was appointed as an assistant professor in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University. He is promoted to an associate professor in 2022. He is also affiliated with the Biodesign Center for Molecular Design and Biomimetics at ASU. Previously, Wang was a research assistant professor at ASU starting from 2015. Prior to joining ASU, he was a research scientist at IBM T.J. Watson research center working on translational systems biology and nanobiotechnology. He studied nanotechnology at Princeton University, obtaining his doctorate in Jan. 2012.
Wang aims to bridge the nanoscience and biotechnology in research. His primary research interests have been in nanofabrication, nanoelectronics, nanofluidics, plasmonics and biosensing. The research goal is to develop a multidisciplinary research program that focuses on advancing nanomanufacturing technologies to address the grand challenges in biomedical, communication and energy applications. The three main research areas are scalable nanomanufacturing, quantum optics, and liquid biopsy. The teaching goal is to educate the students at ASU with fundamental engineering and physical concepts and introduce them the state-of-art technological in biomedicine, quantum physics, and energy applications.
Wang has 26 granted and pending U.S. patents, and has published his research in prestigious journals including Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Communications, Materials Today, ACS Nano, Nano Letters, etc.
