Songbin Gong (S’06–A’09–M’12–SM’17) received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, USA, in 2010. He is currently an Associate Professor and the Intel Alumni Fellow with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory, University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, Urbana, IL, USA. His research primarily focuses on the design and implementation of radio frequency microsystems, components, and subsystems for reconfigurable RF front ends. In addition, his research explores hybrid microsystems based on the integration of MEMS devices with photonics or circuits for signal processing and sensing. He is a recipient of the 2014 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Young Faculty Award, the 2017 NASA Early Career Faculty Award, the 2019 UIUC College of Engineer Dean’s Award for Excellence in Research, and the 2019 IEEE T-UFFC Ultrasonics Early Career Investigator Award. Along with his students and postdocs, he received the Best Paper Awards from the 2017 and 2019 IEEE International Frequency Control Symposium, 2018, 2019, and 2020 International Ultrasonics Symposium, and won 2nd and 3rd places in Best Paper Competition at the 2018 and 2020 IEEE International Microwave Symposium. He is the Technical Committee Chair of MTT TC-6 Microwave Acoustics and RF-MEMS of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society. Currently, he serves as an associate editor for T-UFFC, JMEMS and JMW.
