Professor Lanza has published more than 80 research papers in high-end magazines such as Science, Science, Nature Electronics, Advanced Materials, Nano Letters, Advanced Functional Materials, Nano Energy, 2D Materials, etc., and published a complete book for Wiley-VCH editors, and issued four patents (one of which received a one million dollar investment). Professor Lanza is a member of the editorial board of Advanced Electronic Materials (Wiley-VCH), Scientific Report (Nature), Nanotechnology (American Institute of Physics) and Crystal Research and Technology (Wiley-VCH). He is also a member of the technical committee of some international academic conferences. Professor Lanza was awarded the Microelectronics Engineering Young Investigator Award by Elsevier in 2017. His research focuses on the improvement of 2D material devices, especially the direction of 2D semiconductors and logic memory devices.


Educational Idea

Professor Lanza is fluent in languages such as English, Chinese, German and Spanish. In the research group, Professor Lanza will use English to communicate with students to conduct excellent scientific research. In the beginning, Professor Lanza will use language such as Chinese to help students understand academic concepts. More importantly, all students of the Lanza team will travel to prestigious universities around the world for study for 6-12 months, including MIT, Stanford University, and Cambridge University.
