Dr. Lain-Jong (Lance) Li joined as a Chair Professor in nanomaterials for next-generation devices. He served as a Research Director in Corporate Research at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) from 2017 to 2020.
Experiences: He received his BSc and an MSc in chemistry at National Taiwan University. He obtained his PhD in condensed matter physics at Oxford University in 2006. He was an Assistant professor in Nanyang Technological University Singapore (2006-2009). Since 2010, he has become an Associate Professor at Academia Sinica Taiwan. He joined King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in 2014 and became a full professor in 2016. He became the adjunct SHARP Professor at Univ. of New South Wales (Sydney) in 2017. He is recognized as the highly cited scholar (Clarivate) since 2018 and Universal Scientific Education and Research Network (USERN) 1% top scientist. He has published more than 380 SCI journal articles with around 40,000 citations.
Research interests: Two-dimensional materials (graphene, boron nitrides, transition metal dichalcogenides etc) hold promises in replacing silicon-based technology for manufacturing low-energy-consuming nanoelectronics. However, one of the major bottlenecks that prevent their seeming-less integration with current micro/nanoelectronics technologies is a lack of reproducible approach for wafer-scale synthesis of uniform, single crystalline membranes of these two-dimensional materials. His research is primarily focusing on solving these grand challenges from material and device perspectives for advancing future electronics and extending the Moore’s Law.
