Shumin Wang received BSc and MSc from Department of Physics, Fudan University, China, in 1985 and 1988, respectively, and PhD from Department of Physics, Gothenburg University, Sweden, in 1994. He has been then working at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, since 1994, and was promoted to Associate Professor and Professor in 1999 and 2008. He is also a Professor at ShanghaiTech University since 2013.

Professor Wang is an expert on epitaxial growth, physics and device of low dimensional semiconductor heterostructures and nanostructures. His current research interests include dilute bismide materials and devices, integration of light emitting materials on Si, III-V nanowires and quantum dots, and epitaxial growth of 2D materials. He has edited one book entitled“Lattice Engineering, Technologies and Applications”, written 7 book chapters, published over 420 refereed international journal and conference papers and held 7 granted Chinese patents.

Professor Wang has been as a leader or a principal investigator for over tens Swedish, EU FP7 framework and Chinese national projects. He has been officially invited to nominator candidates for Japan Prize and Nobel Prize in Physics.
