Qiangfei Xia | Electrical and Computer Engineering | UMass Amherst
Dr. Xia is an associate professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at UMass Amherst.
Before joining UMass in Oct. 2010, he spent 3 years as a research associate at Hewlett-Packard Laboratories (HP Labs). While at HP Labs,
he demonstrated the first 3D hybrid memristor-CMOS integrated circuit with reconfigurable logic functions.
He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2007 from Princeton University, where he was a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship in Engineering (a graduate fellowship from Princeton).
Dr. Xia's research interests include post-CMOS nanodevices, device physics, integrated nanosystems, and enabling nanotechnologies. His work has been featured by DARPA,
Nature Nanotechnology, MIT Technology Review, New Scientist, EE Times, Small Times, and The Washington Post, etc. He received a DARPA Young Faculty Award (YFA) (2012), an NSF CAREER Award (2013) and the Barbara H. and Joseph I. Goldstein Outstanding Junior Faculty Award from UMass Amherst (2015).
Dr. Xia teaches Introduction to Electrical and Computer Engineering (ENGIN 112), Semiconductor Devices (ECE 344), Microelectronic Fabrication (ECE571) and Nanostructure Engineering (ECE 597/697NS) at UMass.
In 2011, he was nominated for the Distinguished Teaching Award (DTA), a campus-wide highest honor to recognize exemplary teaching at UMass.
Dr. Xia was the co-program chair for the 14th International Conference on
Nanoimprint & Nanoprint Technology (NNT), and serves as a session head (committee member) for the International Conference on Electron, Ion, and Photon Beam Technology and Nanofabrication (EIPBN) conference, and a technical program committee member for the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS).
He is a senior member of IEEE and a senior member of SPIE. He is also an active NSF panelist and a peer reviewer for tens of international archival journals and several conferences.
