Materials Engineering

This research program’s focus is on developing and fabricating materials and micro-devices. Projects involve nanoparticles for chemical and optical detection of molecules, materials and fabrication methods as well as electrical, mechanical and optical detection methods for particles, molecules and physiological states such as rare cells, blood glucose, and blood pressure.
