SHORT BIO

Dr. Jiang’s research interests are in developing microelectronic/VLSI fabrication techniques, flexible/wearable electronics, bio/chemical sensors, energy devices, and Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS). She is the recipient of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Fellowship, Henry C. McBay Faculty Research Fellowship, and Tuskegee University Faculty Achievement Award. She is principal/co-principal investigator of multiple federally funded research projects sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and NASA with the total amount funding of $6.9 million. Her research has resulted in over 35 papers, 63 conference presentations, and 9 patent applications. Dr. Jiang's research work has been featured in Electronics Letters, Diverse Issues in Higher Education and cited by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and researchers affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Science, MIT and Caltech. She has advised 23 master students and 1 doctoral student at Tuskegee University as major advisor or advisory committee member. Some of her former students are currently working at Intel Corp., SIEMENS Corp., and Microsoft Corp., while others are pursuing Ph.D. degrees at Stanford University, Georgia Institue of Technology among others.
