Professor Nicholas X. Fang will join the University of Hong Kong as Professor of Mechanical Engineering. Professor Fang earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Physics from Nanjing University, China; and Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Los Angeles. He was on the faculty of Mechanical Engineering at M.I.T. from 2011 to 2022, and as assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign from 2004 to 2010. Professor Fang teaches and conducts research in the area of micro/nanotechnology. Professor Fang’s research programs have focused on the scalable manufacturing processes for wave functional materials. While the main efforts focus on new insights of design for advanced manufacturing of wave functional material and devices, his group also actively pursue the applications in the areas of energy conversion, communication, and biomedical imaging. His research also leads to over 16 patent applications on nano- and micro-fabrication, additive manufacturing, and imaging technologies with successful technology transfer to industry (e.g. Osram, BASF, Nissan) and startups.
