Wei-Chih Wang is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Power Mechanical Engineering and Institute of Nanoengineering and Microsystems at the National Tsinghua Univeristy. He is also an Affiltated Associate Professor in the Department of Mechancial Engineering and Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington. He graduated from University of Washington with a degree in electrical engineering in 1996. He later received a postdoctoral fellowship for a DARPA funded piezoelectric MEMS project under Dr. Eun Sok Kim at the University of Hawaii in 1996 and 1997. He has authored or co-authored over 141 technical publications, holds 8 patents and over 200 disclosures. His research interests are in the area of developing polymer based micro sensors and actuators for industrial and biomedical applications. More recently, his work has expanded to THz, IR and visible band 3-D metamaterials, and electromagnetic and electro-active polymer material study. He is currently a Senior member of SPIE, a member of IEEE and Eta Kappa Nu. He is also an associate editor and a member of the editorial board for the International Journal of Optomechatronics and the Sensors & Transducers Journal serve in the program committees for SPIE Smart Structures and Materials + Nondestructive Evaluation and Health Monitoring and International Symposium on Optomechatronics Technologies since 2003 and 2009 respectively and steering program committee Chair for later since 2013.
