Mario Lanza

Junior Chair Professor, Deputy Dean for Research

Mario Lanza got his PhD in Electronic Engineering with honors in 2010 at Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. During the PhD he was a visiting scholar at The University of Manchester (UK) and Deggendorf Institute of Technology (Germany), where he worked on different projects for Infineon Technologies. In 2010-2011 he was NSFC postdoc at Peking University, and in 2012-2013 he was Marie Curie postdoc at Stanford University. In 2013 he became Associate Professor at Soochow University, and in 2017 he was promoted to Full Professor, and he is now serving at the Guangdong Technion – Israel Institute of Technology as Junior Chair Professor. Prof. Lanza has published over 100 research papers, including Science, Nature Electronics and IEDM, edited a book for Wiley-VCH, and registered four patents (one of them granted with 5.6 Million CNY). Prof. Lanza is member of the advisory board of several journals, including Advanced Electronic Materials, Nature Scientific Reports, Nanotechnology, Nano Futures and Crystal Research and Technology, as well as guest editor of a special issue in Advanced Functional Materials. He is an active member of the technical committee of several world-class international conferences, including IEEE-IEDM, IEEE-IRPS, IEEE-IPFA and APS. Prof. Lanza has received the 2017 Young Investigator Award from Microelectronic Engineering (Elsevier), and in 2019 he was appointed as Distinguished Lecturer of the Electron Devices Society (IEEE-EDS). Lanza leads a research group devoted to investigate how to improve electronic devices using 2D materials, with special emphasis on two-dimensional (layered) dielectrics and memristors for non-volatile digital information storage and artificial intelligence computing systems.
