Ph.D. Electrical Engineering, California Institute of Technology, 2007
My laboratory aims at developing and applying micro/nano technologies for biological and medical applications. On one hand, I am interested in studying miniaturized devices and systems that can be integrated with biological system in vitro and in vivo. On the other hand, I am eager to apply these technologies for fundamental biological research, clinic diagnosis and treatment. The research is highly multidisciplinary, interfacing at engineering, biological sciences, physical sciences, and medicine. Current focuses are on:
- Micro/nano fluidic systems to study cancer metastasis
- Implantable devices for in vivo diagnostics and disease monitoring
- Lab-on-chip biomarker detection in body fluid
- Interfacing/interacting biological material with devices
