Changzhi Li (S’06-M’09-SM’13) received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Zhejiang University, China, in 2004, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, in 2009.
In the summers of 2007–2009, he was first with Alereon inc. Ausitn, TX, USA and then Coherent Logix inc. Austin, TX, USA, where he was involved with ultra-wideband (UWB) transceivers and software-defined radio, respectively. He joined Texas Tech University as an Assistant Professor in 2009 and became an Associate Professor in 2014. His research interests include biomedical applications of microwave technology, wireless sensors, and RF/analog circuits.
Dr. Li was a recipient of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) Outstanding Young Engineer Award, the IEEE Sensors Council Early Career Technical Achievement Award, the ASEE Frederick Emmons Terman Award, the IEEE-HKN Outstanding Young Professional Award, the NSF Faculty Early CAREER Award, and the IEEE MTT-S Graduate Fellowship Award. He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE JOURNAL OF ELECTROMAGNETICS, RF AND MICROWAVES IN MEDICINE AND BIOLOGY and the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS I. He served as a guest editor for IEEE JOURNAL ON EMERGING AND SELECTED TOPICS IN CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS special issue on “Wireless Sensing Circuits and Systems for Healthcare and Biomedical Applications” in 2017, a guest editor for IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON MICROWAVE THEORY AND TECHNIQUES special issue on “Emerging RF Measurement Techniques and Applications” in 2016, a guest editor for SENSORS (ISSN 1424-8220) special issue on “Non-contact Sensing” in 2016, and an Associate Editor for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS II from 2014 to 2015. He served as a TPC Co-Chair for the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Biomedical Conference (IMBioC) in 2018 and the IEEE Wireless and Microwave Technology Conference (WAMICON) from 2012 to 2013.
