Jeong-Sun Moon (F’14) received the B.S and M.S. degrees from Seoul National University, Korea, and the Ph.D. degree from Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, in 1995, where he studied electron quantum transport in nanoscale devices and software-defined digital transceivers. In 1995, he joined Sandia National Laboratories as a postdoctoral scholar, where he worked on III-V semiconductor nanoscale devices including 2D-2D resonant tunneling transistors. In 2000, he joined HRL Laboratories, Malibu, CA, and he is a Senior Research Scientist at HRL Laboratories. He has managed numerous research contracts from DARPA, ONR, NRO, JPL and NASA. His research focuses on emerging materials/devices and RF/high-speed devices/circuits including GaN, InP, GaSb, SiGe, Graphene, and phase-change material, as well as optical devices. He has published two book chapters and has authored or co-authored more than 100 papers and holds 20 patents. He also gave numerous invited conference and workshop presentations and tutorials/ short courses. His work was featured in various magazines including IEEE Spectrum, Compound Semiconductor, NASA Tech Briefs, Microwave Journal, and MIT Technology Review. He served on the Program Committee for the Device Research Conference. He is a member of Technical Program Committee in Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S).

Dr. Moon is a Fellow of the IEEE and a recipient of the George Abraham Outstanding Paper Award from Government Microcircuit Applications and Critical Technology Conference (GOMACTech) in 2014, and the NASA SPACE ACT Board Award in 2009.
