Dr. SHAN Guangcun is an experienced professional scholar with a proven track record of academic researcher and building high-tech business maker in the electronic engineering, new materials, creative industry & industry park and nanotechnology. His background from large MNResearch Institutions allowed him to move and drive new projects, displaying his leadership qualities and ability to turn ideas into reality. He was a pioneer in the creative industry projects in Shanghai as early as 2008.
Prof. Dr. SHAN used to be a scholar of Applied Physics and Electronic Engineering in the City University of Hong Kong. As a free thinker, Guangcun's main research interests comprise advanced microsystems, magnetic compounds, device physics, low-dimensional physics, nanophotonics with applications in bio-X, MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems), optoelectronics & biophotonics, and terahertz technology.
Guangcun is also an academic policy-maker and strategic consultant, serving as aCourt member in City University of Hong Kong, which is the supreme advisory body of the University.
And he has also held Standing Committee Member, in Verein der Fudan Absolventen und Mitglieder in Deutschland (FAMD) e.V from 2014-2016.
He is currently driving the growth of new materials and new intelligent hardware and printing & microsystem technology which has fast become the most capitalized technology in its sector. Guangcun has developed the business from Shanghai and Hong Kong, and has a lot of passions for supporting the start-up scene in the great China region.
He used to be one of the early proposers and co-planner of 上海微技术工业研究院（SITRI), which is now one of the most important entity for Shanghai on becoming a global innovation center.
Guangcun received his B.S. degree in electronic information engineering from Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, China in 2004, and Master degrees in Science from the Fudan University Shanghai, in 2007. From 2007 to 2009, he was a co-founding Manager of Representative at Shanghai Jiading Industrial Zone Group Development Co. (also Jiading Industrial Zone Administrative Committee), Shanghai. He has previously undertaken research attachments at Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology, CAS, China.
From August 2010 to August 2013, he has pursued Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics from the City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, where he also served as council member from 2011 to 2012. His doctoral thesis title - "Investigations of Atomic-level Structure-property Relationship of Ternary Magnetic Metallic Alloys and Metal-pipe Waveguides for Sub-terahertz Application," C. H. Shek - Thesis Advisor.
From May 2012 to August 2012, he has been a visiting scholar working on nanomechanics and molecular dynamics simulation of 2D materials in The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, Columbia University, in the city of New York, USA, under supervision by Professor Xi Chen.
He has published over 30 SCI journal papers and 10 conference papers. Dr. SHAN is a Member of IEEE, DPG, and a member of SPIE.
