  • Jerry Yang

    Jerry Yang

    Ph.D. Student in Electrical Engineering, admitted Autumn 2020

    BioJerry A. Yang is a PhD student in electrical engineering at Stanford University. He received his BS in electrical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. He currently works on strain engineering in two-dimensional materials in Prof. Eric Pop's lab. In addition, he works on exploring the role of internships in first-generation and low-income engineering students' professional identity development in Prof. Sheri Sheppard's Designing Education Lab. He is a member of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) as well as a student member of the American Society of Engineering Education.

    Jerry's research interests span both engineering, education, and the intersection of engineering and education. In the engineering field, his research interests include novel two-dimensional materials for next-generation computing, quantum computing, and flexible/wearable devices. In the education field, he is interested in diversity, equity, and inclusion in engineering education, in particular the intersection of sociology, feminist theory, and queer theory and their applications to engineering education research methods and practice.
