October 2012 H.-S. Philip Wong

Appointed the Willard R. and Inez Kerr Bell Professorship in the School of Engineering


Philip is professor of Electrical Engineering. He received electrical engineering degrees from the University of Hong Kong (BSc, 1982), the University of New York, Stony Brook (MS, 1983), and Lehigh University (PhD, 1988). Professor Wong joined Stanford in 2004, after sixteen years in various research capacities at IBM (T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown, NY).


Philip’s research interests are in the area of nanoscale science and technology, semiconductor technology, solid-state devices, and electronic imaging. He is interested in exploring new materials, novel fabrication techniques, and novel device concepts for future nanoelectronics systems. His research also includes explorations into circuits and systems that are device-driven. His current research covers a broad range of topics including carbon nanotubes, semiconductor nanowires, self-assembly, exploratory logic devices, nanoelectronmechanical devices, novel memory devices, and biosensors. Philip has published extensively in these areas and is widely regarded as a national research leader.


A Fellow of the IEEE, Philip also serves on the Executive Committee of the Symposium on VLSI Technology and Circuits, and is a member of the Emerging Research Devices Working Group of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors. He has also recently published a book.


I greatly value and appreciate Philip’s efforts to champion the area of nanoscale science and technology within the school and at the university level. His distinguished academic and research efforts make him a deserving recipient of this endowed chair. Please join me in congratulating him on this honor.
