Biography

Dr. Yu-Ming Lin received the B.S. degree in physics from National Taiwan University, Taiwan, in 1996, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering and computer science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2000 and 2003, respectively.  At MIT, his work has focused on thermoelectric properties of Bismuth-based nanowires, using a non-lithographic self-assembly process. 

From 2003 to 2011, he was with IBM T. J. Watson Research Center as Research Staff Member in the Physical Science department. His work at IBM focused on the exploration and application of novel nanoscale electronic devices based on carbon nanotubes and graphene. At IBM, he fabricated the first graphene transistor beyond 100 GHz and also demonstrated the first graphene integrated circuit.

In 2011, Dr. Lin co-founded Bluestone Global Tech (BGT), a New York-based technology company dedicated to the mass production of graphene films and the development of graphene-based applications, including flexible touch panels, high-capacity battery, and high-speed ICs. Dr. Lin was VP of Technology at BGT from 2011 to 2014.

Dr. Lin is the author or co-author of more than 80 scientific papers, including two book chapters. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and received Lee Hsun Young Scientist award, IEEE EDS George Smith Award, Pat Goldberg Memorial Best Paper Award, and a number of IBM Corporation “Outstanding Technical Achievement” awards.
