We are interested in developing integrated circuits and hybrid micro-systems to address multiple high-impact application spaces, including wireless communication, radar, and health care research. 

Our current research topics include:

· Broadband, energy-efficient, and reconfigurable RF/mm-Wave/THz integrated circuits and systems

· Mixed-signal and digital RF/mm-Wave integrated circuits and systems

· Novel electromagnetic structures for antennas, filters, beam-formers, and mode-formers

· Integrated cellular and molecular sensors/actuators and sensors/actuators interface circuits

· Biology-microelectronics hybrid systems and multi-physics modeling

  • Apr 2015

Our research on multi-modality CMOS biosensor array and its applications in synthetic biology research, drug development, chemical scanning, and personalized medicine receives press coverage at EETimes and other major news media.

We are combining CMOS microelectronics and living biological components to build hybrid "cyborg-like" systems for sensing, actuation, signal process, and biological synthesis.

Our ultimate goal is to see if we could eventually build a CMOS hybrid life form.
