Göran Stemme was born in 1958 in Stockholm, Sweden. He received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering in 1981 and the Ph. D. degree in solid state electronics in 1987, both from the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. In 1981, he joined the Department of Solid State Electronics, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. There, in 1990, he became an associate professor (docent) heading the silicon sensor research group.

In 1991, Dr. Stemme was appointed professor at The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, where he heads the Microsystem Technology group at the School of Electrical Engineering. His research is devoted to microsystem technology based on micromachining of silicon. The works spans over a broad range of technological and application fields such as medical technology, biochemistry, biotechnology, microfluidics, optical applications, wafer-level packaging and device integration. Some of the results have successfully been commercialized.

Between 1995 and 2001 he was a member of the International Steering Committee of the Conference series IEEE Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) and he was General Co-Chair of that conference in 1998. Dr. Stemme has been a member of the Editorial Board of the IEEE/ASME Journal of Microelectromechnical Systems since 1997 and was a member of the the Editorial Board of the Royal Society of Chemistry journal 'Lab On A Chip' between 2000 and 2005. In 2001 he won, together with two colleagues, the final of Innovation Cup in Sweden. Dr. Stemme has published more than 150 research journal and conference papers and has more than 12 patents proposals or granted patents. Dr. Stemme is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (KVA) and he is an IEEE Fellow.
