Long Que received his undergraduate education in Physics and graduate education in Electronics from Peking University in China. He earned his Ph. D. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2000. After working in industry in California, he was a visiting scholar at the Center for Wireless Integrated Microsystems at University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and at the Center for Nanoscale Materials at Argonne National Laboratories. Thereafter he worked at GE-Global Research Center as a task leader and a project leader, and he was a John Cordaro/Entergy Endowed Associate Professor with tenure at Louisiana Tech. Presently he is an Associate Professor with tenure in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University.

Dr. Que co-authored three books: Optical MEMS for Chemical Analysis and Biomedicine (Ed. H. Jiang, IET, 2016), Micro-Opto-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MOEMS) (Ed. M.E. Motamedi, SPIE Press, 2005) and Comprehensive Microsystems (Ed. Y.B. Gianchandani, O. Tabata, H. Zappe, Elsevier, 2008).  He has published over 100 papers in major conferences and journals and has over 25 awarded and pending US patents. His patents have been used or licensed by companies such as GE and Intel. Dr. Que received a national research award from Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1997. He won invention awards from GE for over 10 US patents. He is a recipient of NSF-CAREER Award. His research group received a research award from Louisiana Tech and received a recognition award from Board of Regents of Louisiana in 2009. He received the outstanding invention award from Louisiana Tech in 2011. His research group received the Best Student Paper Award at IEEE SENSORS Conference 2016. He received the McGee-Wagner Award from Iowa State University in 2018.  His current research interests and projects include bionanotechnology, bioMEMS, renewable energy technologies, nanomaterials and nanodevices enabled by self assembly technique.
