Prof. Songbin Gong received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, USA, in 2010. He is currently an Associate Professor and an 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 RF-MEMS devices, components, and subsystems for reconfigurable RF front ends. In addition, his research explores hybrid microsystems based on the integration of MEMS devices with circuits or photonics for signal processing. He is a recipient of the 2014 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Young Faculty Award, the 2017 NASA Early Career Faculty Award, 2019 Dean’s Award for Excellence in Research, and 2019 IEEE 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 and the 2018, 2019, and 2020 IEEE International Ultrasonic Symposium and the 2nd and 3rd place in the Best Paper Competition at 2018 and 2020 International Microwave Symposium. He has been a Technical Committee Member of MTT-6 Microwave Acoustics and RF-MEMS of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, International Frequency Control Symposium, and International Electron Devices Meeting and is serving as an associate editor for JMEMS, T-UFFC, and JMW.
