Jeffrey H. Lang received his SB (1975), SM (1977) and PhD (1980) degrees from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. In 1980, he joined the faculty of MIT, where he is now a professor of electrical engineering and computer science. He served as the associate director of the MIT Laboratory for Electromagnetic and Electronic Systems between 1991 and 2003, and as an associate editor of Sensors and Actuators between 1991 and 1994.
Lang's research and teaching interests focus on the analysis, design and control of electromechanical systems with an emphasis on: rotating machinery; micro-scale (MEMS) sensors, actuators and energy converters; flexible structures; and the dual use of electromechanical actuators as motion and force sensors. He has written more than 220 papers and holds 12 patents in the areas of electromechanics, MEMS, power electronics and applied control, and has been awarded four best-paper prizes from IEEE societies. He has also received two teaching awards from MIT.
He is a co-author of Foundations of Analog and Digital Electronic Circuits, published by Morgan Kaufman, and the editor of and a contributor to Multi-Wafer Rotating MEMS Machines: Turbines Generators and Engines, published by Springer. Lang is a fellow of the IEEE and a former Hertz Foundation Fellow.
