Professor We Lu's
research interest includes high-density memory based on two-terminal
resistive devices (RRAM), memristors and memristive systems, neuromorphic circuits,
aggressively scaled nanowire transistors, and other emerging electrical devices. He
received his B.S. (1996) and Ph.D (2003) in physics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, and Rice University, Houston, TX respectively. From 2003 to 2005, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard
University, Cambridge, MA. He joined the faculty of the University
of Michigan in 2005 and is currently a Professor. Currently he is a co-Editor-in-Chief for
Nanoscale, a member of the
ITRS (International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors) ERD (Emerging Research Device) working group, a member of the
IEEE, MRS, APS, and an active member of several IEEE technical committees
and program committees. He was a recipient of the NSF CAREER
Award in 2009, EECS Outstanding Achievement Award in 2012, and the 2014-15 Rexford E. Hall Innovation Excellence Award.
To date he has published over 100 journal and conference papers that have received over 12,000 citations with an h-factor of 45 ( Google Scholar ), and has attracted over
$10M external research funding. Prof. Lu is currently advising 11 Ph.D. students and 3 Postdocs.
He is also co-founder and Chief Scientist of Crossbar Inc,
a Silicon Valley semiconductor company with over $85M VC funding to date to develop next generation non-volatile memories.
