Jiahao Kang was born in Suihua, Heilongjiang Province, China. He received his Bachelor of Engineering degree in Microelectronics from the Department of Microelectronics and Nanoelectronics, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2010 and Master of Science degree in Electronics and Photonics from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) in 2013. He is now a Ph. D Candidate in the Department of ECE, UCSB and a Graduate Student Researcher in Nanoelectronics Research Lab (NRL) under the supervision of Prof. Kaustav Banerjee.

His current research is focused on two-dimensional (2D) electronic materials, starting from in-depth understanding of the physics of various metal contacts, dopants and dielectric interfaces involving 2D materials, to device design for obtaining optimal performances and finally to experimental demonstration of highly efficient transistors and circuits on 2D materials, as well as other unique applications enabled by these materials.

His research is chronicled in more than 40 papers in leading international conferences and journals including IEEE IEDM, Nature, Nano letters, ACS nano, Physics Review X and Applied Physics Letters. The total citation number is above 1,400 as of 2017, with an h-index of 16. 

He was awarded a number of prizes for outstanding research performance including IEEE EDS PhD Student Fellowship and Peter J. Frenkel Foundation Fellowship
