Xiaojin Zhao (IEEE Senior Member) received the B.Sc. degrees in both microelectronics and applied mathematics from Peking University, Beijing, China, in 2005, and Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), Hong Kong, China, in 2010.

From 2010 to 2011, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate with HKUST. In 2012, he joined Shenzhen University, Shenzhen, China, where he is currently a Full Professor with the State Key Laboratory of Radio Frequency Heterogeneous Integration and the College of Electronics and Information Engineering. In 2014, he was a Visiting Scholar with IMEC, Leuven, Belgium. He has published 110 international journal articles and peer-reviewed conference papers (mostly in IEEE). His research interests include CMOS/MEMS monolithic image sensor, gas sensor, and their related hardware security techniques (e.g., physical unclonable function and true random number generator) when applied to the field of smart Internet of Things (IoT).

Dr. Zhao serves as an Associate Editor of IEEE Sensors Journal and has served as an organizing/technical committee member in various IEEE conferences (e.g., DAC, ISCAS, APCCAS, AsianHOST). He also serves as a Technical Committee Member for the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) on Sensory Systems and the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) on VLSI Systems and Applications. He was a co-recipient of the Best Student Paper Award from the IEEE EDSSC'2018 in Shenzhen, China, and the Outstanding Student Paper Award from the IEEE MEMS'2020 in Vancouver, BC, Canada. He has one paper selected as the cover page of the IEEE ELECTRON DEVICE LETTERS (EDL) in 2020 and two papers selected as the finalist of the Best Paper Award for AsianHOST'2017 in Beijing, and AsianHOST'2019 in Xi'an, China. He has served as the Vice Chair and the Chair for the IEEE Electron Devices and Solid-State Circuits (EDSSC) Shenzhen Joint Chapter from 2015 to 2019. He also serves as the Chair for the IEEE Circuits and Systems (CAS) Shenzhen Chapter.
