Prof. Kevin Chen received his B.S. degree from Peking University, Beijing, China in 1988, and PhD degree from University of Maryland, College Park, USA in 1993. His industry experience includes carrying out research and development on III-V high-speed devices in NTT LSI Laboratories, Atsugi, Japan and Agilent Technologies Inc., Santa Clara, California, USA. Prof. Chen joined Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2000, where he iscurrently a professor in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering. At HKUST, he has carried out research in wide-bandgap III-nitride devices and ICs, GaN-based MEMSdevices, silicon-based microwave passive components and 3D through-silicon via interconnects, and multi-band reconfigurable microwave filters. Currently, his group is focused on developing GaN device technologies for power electronics and high-temperature electronics applications.

Prof. Chen has authored or co-authored more than 280 publications in international journals and conference proceedings. He has been granted 4 US patents.

He currently serves as a distinguished lecturer and a member in the compound semiconductor device and IC technology committee in IEEE Electron Device Society.
