MSE Areas: Flexible/stretchable electronics, soft matter, nanomaterials, thin films

Our group is interested in the future generation “soft” biomedical devices for advanced healthcare and biomedical research. Research areas in my group include design and fabrication of flexible/stretchable electronics, photonic microsystems, and ultrathin/soft microfluidic devices for various applications such as health/wellness monitoring, disease diagnosis and therapy, prosthetics, and human-machine interfaces. We pursue interdisciplinary approach, involving knowledge and techniques from materials science and engineering, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, and physics. Our interests lie in developing wearable functional artificial skin systems, implantable “soft” and/or “transient” devices, and endoscopic optical microscopes and photonic sensors.
