Guoan Wang (S’02-M’06-SM’09) received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2006. From 2006 to 2011, he was an Advisory Engineer at IBM Semiconductor Research and Development Center, where he was responsible for on chip mmwave passives development and modeling. In 2011, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC as an assistant professor. His research interests include smart RF passive devices, compact on chip RF passives, novel materials and their applications, and 3D integrated devices/system development. He has over 50 publications in international journals and peer-reviewed conference proceedings, 1 book (Passive RF Component Technology: Materials, Techniques and Applications, Artech House, 2011) and 46 licensed and pending patents in those areas.
Dr. Wang currently serves on the Technical Program Committees of IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) and IEEE Antennas and Propagation Symposium (AP-S). He is also a member of IEEE MTT-S TC-25, the technical coordinating committee of RF MEMS technologies.
