  • Multiferroic materials and transducers
  • Micro-/Nano-Electro-Mechanical system
  • Micro-/Nano-scale manufacturing and advanced semiconductor processing


Dr. Tao Wu is an assistant professor, PI in ShanghaiTech University, China. He received the B.S. degree from the Zhejiang University China in 2007 (with honors), and earned his M.S. and Ph.D degrees from University of California, Los Angeles in 2009 and 2011, respectively. After graduation, he worked as a Process TD Engineer in Intel Corp. (Hillsboro, OR), focusing on high quality metal and low temperature oxide deposition using Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD).  From 2014/08 to 2015/06, he was a Post-Doctoral Researcher in Prof. Roger T. Howe’s group, Stanford University and leading a Google ATAP funded monocentric imager project. After that, he worked as a Post-Doctoral Researcher in Northeastern University leading a DARPA funded Nero-Zero sensor project using novel AlN resonator/switching technique for ultra-low power receiver application.

He has published many papers on international conferences and journals, including Nature Microsystems & Nanoengineering, ACS Nano, Applied Physics Letter, Journal of Applied Physics, Physical Review Letter, with a total citation over 1000 and H-index 16 (Google Scholar). He has also served as a reviewer on over 20 journals and conferences.

Dr. Wu’s research interests include novel multiferroic materials and transducers, Micro-/Nano-Electro-Mechanical system, Micro-/Nano-manufacturing and advanced semiconductor processing. He welcomes all science and engineering background to join his lab to explore fascinating micro/nano-technologies.
