Postdoc

Wei Sun is a postdoctoral associate in the EECS department, where she works with Professor Jing Kong. She received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2015 and completed her undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering (Electronics) at University of Technology Malaysia in 2011. Her research interest lies at the interface of nanomaterial synthesis, nanodevice fabrication, and device physics to understand and engineer new device architectures with unique functionalities based on atomically thin materials (e.g. graphene, MoS2, h-BN and other novel 2D materials). Wei Sun is member of the American Physical Society (APS) and the Materials Research Society (MRS). She received the 2011 UTM Gold Medal, Dean’s Award and Academic Award, the 2014 NUS ECE Best Graduate Student Award, 2015-2017 MIT-SUTD Postdoctoral Fellowship, the 2017 MIT Microsystems Annual Research Conference Poster Hunt Award, and the 2017 APS Division of Materials Physics Post-Doctoral Travel Award. She is actively involved in international conferences — in part simply because she enjoys travelling. Her dream is to roam the globe.
