The Bioelectronics research group seeks to apply advanced engineering techniques to enhance the capability of brain-machine interface, the throughput of parallelized biosensors, and the accessibility of portable medical diagnostics.
The main research area is in developing novel sensing systems using analog integrated circuit design and nanofabrication technologies to yield a highly-sensitive and massively-parallelized biosensors that is otherwise impossible.

The goal of our work is to develop a new approach to eliminate massive external wire connections and packaging complexity, and build a strong foundation that will lead future BMI developments beyond 1000-ch parallel recording capabilities.

we work on various bioinstrumentation projects that will have immediate impact to our science & engineering community as well as human well-being. The work offers easier user interface, portability, and low-cost in bioinstrumentation.
