Prof. Cheng Wang received his B.S. degree in Microelectronics from Tsinghua University in 2012, and his S.M. (2015) and Ph.D. (2017) degrees, both in Electrical Engineering from Harvard University, supervised by Prof. Marko Lončar. After conducting research as a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard, he joined City University of Hong Kong as an Assistant Professor in 2018. Prof. Wang's research focuses on the design and nanofabrication technology of integrated photonic devices and circuits. His current research effort focuses on realizing integrated lithium niobate photonic circuits for applications in optical communications, millimeter-wave/terahertz technologies, nonlinear optics, and quantum photonics. Since joining CityU, Prof. Wang has received a number of awards in both research and teaching, including the NSFC Excellent Young Scientist Fund (HK & Macau) (2019), the Croucher Innovation Award (2020), The President's Award, CityU (2020), 35 Innovators Under 35 (China), MIT Technology Review (2021), as well as EE Outstanding Teaching Award (2019/20&2020/21) and College Outstanding Teaching Award (2020/21).
