Prof. Fang was born in Taipei, Taiwan. He has been working in the MEMS field for 20 years. He received his Ph.D. degree from Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA) in 1995. His doctoral research focused on the determining of the mechanical properties of thin films using MEMS structures. In 1995, he worked as a postdoctoral research for LIGA project at Synchrotron Radiation Research Center, Taiwan. He joined the Power Mechanical Engineering Department at the National Tsing Hua University (Taiwan) in 1996, where he is now a Professor as well as a faculty of NEMS Institute. From June to September 1999, he was at California Inst. of Tech. as a visiting associate. He has established a world-class MEMS testing and characterization lab. His research interests include MEMS with emphasis on micro physical sensors and actuators, micro fabrication/packaging technologies, CMOS MEMS, micro optical systems, and characterization of thin film mechanical properties.

 Prof. Fang has published more than 110 SCI journal papers, near 180 international conference papers, and 60 patents (all in MEMS field). He is now the Board Member of JMM (SCI journal), and the Associate Editor of IEEE Sensors J., JM3 (SCI journals) and JSTS (J. of Semiconductor Tech. and Science, published by the IEE of Korea). He has served as the chief delegate of Taiwan for World Micromachine Summit since 2008. He also served as the TPC (Technical program committee) of IEEE MEMS’04, MEMS’07, and MEMS’10, the TPC of Transducers’07, and the EPC of Transducers’09 and Transducers’11. He has become the member of international steering committee of Transducers from 2009. He serves as the Asia Regional Program Co-Chair of IEEE Sensors 2010, and the TPC Chair of IEEE NEMS 2011. He also serves as the Steering Committee for APCOT (Asia Pacific Conf. on Transducers) from 2008-2012, and the TPC Co-chair for APCOT 2008. 

There are 26 PhD and 60 Master students graduated from Prof. Fang’s group so far. Most of them are working in the MEMS and micro sensors related companies, such as TSMC, UMC, ADI, InvenSense, Qualcomm, APM, tMt, Sitronix, PixArt, Domintech, WindTop, etc. He is now the MEMS committee member of SEMI Taiwan. He is the standing committee member of the Nanotechnology and Micro System Association (NMA), Taiwan. He also serves as the chair of the Technology Development and the International Collaboration Committee in NMA. Moreover, Prof. Fang serves as the technical consultant for many MEMS companies in Taiwan.
