Research Interests

​I am interested in using my experience in electrical engineering, fluid mechanics, and cleanroom microfabrication to collaborate with biological or chemical researchers in the development of microfluidic technologies. By taking the advantages of miniaturization and on-chip integration of electrical sensors, I want to create high-throughput screening and production systems for innovative biological and chemical libraries.
