Undergraduate Student Scholarship Committee Member
Ru Huang - MOS Devices and Technology
Ru Huang (M’98–SM’06) received the B.S. (highest honors) and M.S. degrees in electronic engineering from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in 1991 and 1994, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in microelectronics from Peking University, Beijing, China, in 1997. In 1997, she joined the faculty of Peking University, where she is currently a Professor and the Head of the Department of Microelectronics. Since 2000, she has been the leader of several State Key Research Projects of China in device research and IC fabrication technology research, including major state basic research projects, 863 national projects, the key project from National Natural Science Foundation, as well as several collaborative projects with Samsung, Intel and Fujitsu Corporations. Her research interests include nano-scaled CMOS devices, nonvolatile memory devices and new devices for RF and harsh environment applications. She holds 21 granted patents, and has authored/co-authored 4 books and over 180 papers, including many conference invited papers. Dr. Huang is the winner of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars and many other awards in China, including the National Youth Science Award, Science and Technology Progress Award from Ministry of Information Industry and Ministry of Education. She serves as a member of IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) AdCom and the associate chief editor of Science in China. She was the Technical Program Co-Chair of the 7th and 9th International Conference on Solid State and Integrated Circuit Technology (ICSICT 2004 and 2008), a Far East Committee Member of the 2004 International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), and committee members of many other international conferences and symposiums.
