        Tuo-Hung Hou was born in Chia-Yi, Taiwan, in 1975. He received his B.S. and M.S. in electronics engineering from National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan in 1996 and 1998, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Cornell University in 2008. From 1998 to 2000, he served as a Second Lieutenant in the Army, Taiwan, R.O.C. In 2000, he joined Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). From 2001 to 2003, he was also a TSMC assignee at International SEMATECH, Austin, TX. During his tenure with TSMC, he has contributed to several key front-end processes such as spike annealing, high-k / metal gate stack through atomic layer chemical deposition, and reliability improvement of ultra-thin gate oxide. Since 2008, he joined the Department of Electronics Engineering, National Chiao Tung University, where he is currently a Professor.
        His current research emphasizes on the combined experimental and modeling approach on several emerging post-CMOS solid-state devices. [1] Nonvolatile-charge based floating-gate structures in heterogeneous integration with zero-dimensional (0D) (nanocrystals, fullerenes, engineered defects) and one-dimensional (1D) (carbon nanotubes, nanowires) systems. [2] Ultra-dense terabit nonvolatile memory based on the cross-point resistive switching of binary oxides. [3] Solid-state molecular sensor through measuring the characteristic reduction and oxidation states of individual molecules.
        Tuo-Hung Hou has authored or co-authored more than 100 technical papers and held 10 U.S. patents. He was also a recipient of IEEE Electron Device Society PhD student fellowship in 2007, EDMA Outstanding Youth Award in 2012, and Ta-You Wu Memorial Award in 2013.
