Prof Qiming Shao is currently an assistant professor in Electronic and Computer Engineering of HKUST, and affiliated with the Department of Physics. He received his Bachelor’s degree in 2013 from Tsinghua University and his Ph.D. in 2019 from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). 
His lab aims to realize energy and time-efficient hardware for physical and quantum intelligence. His research interests are novel electronic and spintronic materials and structures for memory, neuromorphic and quantum computing applications. His research works are published in top peer-reviewed journals and conferences, including Science, Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Electronics, Nature Communications, Nano Letters, and International Electron Device Meeting. 
He is a recipient of UCLA Distinguished PhD Dissertation Award, 2018-2019 Dissertation Year Fellowship, 2019 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad, two Best Poster Awards at 2018 International Conference on Magnetism, and 2015 Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship finalist.
