Brief Biography

Long Que received the undergraduate education in physics and graduate education in electronics from Peking University, China. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2000. After working in industry in California, he was a Visiting Scholar in the Center for Wireless Integrated Microsystems, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, and in the Center for Nanoscale Materials, Argonne National Laboratories. Thereafter, he was with GE-Global Research Center as a Project Leader before he joined the Institute for Micromanufacturing and Electrical Engineering Program at Louisiana Tech in the fall of 2007, where he was a John Cordaro/Entergy Endowed Associate Professor with tenure. In the fall of 2014, he joined Iowa State University as an Associate Professor with tenure in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He has authored or coauthored three book chapters and more than 100 papers in major conferences and journals and has more than 25 awarded and pending US patents. His current research interests and projects include bionanotechnology, bioMEMS, renewable energy technologies, nanomaterials and  nanodevices enabled by self-assembly technique. Dr. Que was a recipient of National Research Award from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1997. He won invention awards from GE for more than 10 US patents. He was a recipient of NSF-CAREER Award. His research group also received a research award from the College of Engineering and Sciences at Louisiana Tech and received a recognition award from Board of Regents of Louisiana in 2009. He received the outstanding invention award from Louisiana Tech in 2011. His student received the Best Student Paper Award from IEEE SENSORS 2016 International Conference. He received the McGee-Wagner Award from Iowa State University in 2018.
