Research Focus

I design and fabricate sensors, integrate sensors into a smart sensor system to monitor the chemicals and pollution in the environment. In addition, my research focuses on self-powered, autonomous-driving monitoring platforms for aquatic ecosystems.

Current Projects

■ Topological insulator field effect transistors for memory and sensors (NSF research grant).

■ Nanoengineered hybrid gas sensors for spacesuit monitoring.

■ Graphene chemical sensors for precise discrimination.
