Xin Zhang ( is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, and the Photonics Center at Boston University. Her research interests are in the broad areas of metamaterials and microelectromechanical systems. She is an elected Fellow of AAAS, AIMBE, APS, ASME, IEEE, NAI, and OSA. Her recent research on metamaterials technologies, both those that enable highly efficient, air-permeable sound silencing and noise reduction and those that markedly boost MRI signal-to-noise ratio and thus significantly improve the performance of MRI, have drawn significant worldwide interest from the scientific community and industry, with the stories having been picked up by 200+ media outlets.
