Prof. Lin received the B.S. degree in Electrophysics from National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), Hsinchu, Taiwan, R.O.C., in 1987, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), in 1991 and 1994, respectively.

In 1994, he joined AT&T Bell Labs (became Lucent Bell Labs in 1997), Murray Hill, New Jersey, as a Member of Technical Staff, and became the Technical Manager of RF and High Speed Circuit Design Research in 2000, where he was involved with RF integrated circuits using various technologies for wireless communications. In September 2001, he joined Agere Systems, a spin-off from Lucent Technologies, where he was involved with high speed CMOS circuit design for optical and backplane communications. In July 2003, he joined University of Florida as an Associate Professor and was promoted to Full Professor in August 2007. He was the Chair of Electronics Division in Electrical and Computer Engineering Department from Fall 2008 to Spring 2010. He served as an elected Faculty Senator in UF Faculty Senate in 2006-2009. He was a Visiting Professor at National Taiwan University in summer 2006, a Visiting Researcher at NTT Microsystem Integration Laboratories in summer 2010, a Visiting Chair Professor at National Sun Yat-sen University, Taiwan, in summer 2012, and was appointed as an Honorary Chair Professor of National Taiwan University of Science and Technology starting March 2014. His current research interests include sensors and biomedical applications of microwave and millimeter-wave technologies, wireless energy transfer and conversion, RF system-on-chip integration, and integrated antennas. Dr. Lin has authored or co-authored over 250 technical publications in refereed journals and conference proceedings. He holds 14 patents and has several other patent applications. Since joining University of Florida, he has graduated 20 PhD students.

Dr. Lin was elected to the Fellow of IEEE in 2010 for his contributions to integrated microwave circuits and systems for wireless sensors. He was an elected IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) Administrative Committee (AdCom) member 2006-2011, and served as the Chair of Technical Coordinating Committee 2010-2011, overseeing all technical committees and exploring new technical fields. He was an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques from 2006 to 2010, and is now serving as the Transactions' Editor-in-Chief. He is a member of technical committees MTT-10 Biological Effects and Medical Applications, MTT-20 Wireless Communications, MTT-23 RFIC, and MTT-26 Wireless Energy Transfer and Conversion where he co-founded in 2011 and served as the chair 2013-2015. He has been serving on several conference steering committees and technical program committees, including International Microwave Symposium (IMS), Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Symposium (RFIC), Radio and Wireless Symposium (RWS). He was the General Chair of 2008 IEEE RFIC Symposium and the Technical Program Co-Chair of the same conference in 2006 and 2007. He was the Technical Program Chair of 2009 IEEE Radio and Wireless Symposium. He was the General Co-Chair of 2012 Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference (APMC). He has been serving on several advisory committees and advisory boards. He received 1994 UCLA Outstanding Ph.D. Award, 1997 ETA KAPPA NU Outstanding Young Electrical Engineer Honorable Mention Award, and 2007 IEEE MTT-S N. Walter Cox Award. He is the co-author/advisor of several best student paper awards in IEEE conferences. One of his students received the IEEE MTT-S Graduate Fellowship Award in 2008 and two others received the MTT-S Undergraduate/Pre-Graduate Scholarship Awards in 2004 and 2008, respectively. He received the University of Florida Technology Innovator Awards in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.
