Mario Lanza is a Full Professor at the Institute of Functional Nano & Soft Materials of Soochow University since September 2013. Dr. Lanza got his PhD in Electronics in 2010 at Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. During the PhD he was a visiting scholar at The University of Manchester (UK) and Infineon Technologies (Germany). In 2010-2011 he did a postdoc at Peking University, and in 2012-2013 he was a Marie Curie fellow at Stanford University. Dr. Lanza has published over 100 research papers, including Science, Nature Electronics and IEDM, edited an entire book for Wiley-VCH, and registered four patents (one of them granted with 5.6 Million CNY). He is member of the advisory board of Advanced Electronic Materials (Wiley-VCH, Germany), Scientific Reports (Nature Publishing Group, UK), Nanotechnology (Institute of Physics, UK), Nano Futures (Institute of Physics, UK) and Crystal Research and Technology (Wiley-VCH, Germany), as well as guest editor of an special issue in Advanced Functional Materials (Wiley-VCH, Germany). He is an an active member of the technical committee of several world-class international conferences (including IEEE-IEDM, IEEE-IRPS and IEEE-IPFA). Prof. Lanza has received some of the most prestigious awards in his field, including the 2017 Young Investigator Award from Microelectronic Engineering (Elsevier), the 2015 Young 1000 Talent award, and the 2012 Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowship (among others), and in 2019 he was appointed as Distinguished Lecturer of the Electron Devices Society (IEEE-EDS). Currently he is leading a research group formed by 15-20 PhD students and postdocs, and together they investigate on the improvement of 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.
