Qiliang Li received Ph.D. (2004) in Electrical and Computer Engineering from North Carolina State University. His doctoral research was in the area of molecular electronics and hybrid silicon/molecular field effect transistors and memories. In Oct. 2004, he joined the Semiconductor Electronics Division of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, MD, as a research scientist, where he was involved with the fabrication, characterization and simulation of CMOS and nanoelectronics materials and devices. He joined the faculty of George Mason University as an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2007, and promoted to Associate Professor in 2012. He received the honor of Virginia Microelectronics Consortium Professorship in 2007. He received NSF CAREER Award in 2009, Mason Emerging Researcher/Scholar/Creator Award in 2011 and the VSE Rising Star Award in 2011. He has worked on molecular electronics, nanoelectronics, solar cell, ferroelectric memory and magnetoresistance devices. He authored or coauthored more than 60 technical papers and has two U.S. patents.
