I work on miniature biomedical and MEMS devices including drug pumps, intraocular lens, retinal implants, cortical implants, spinal cord implants, circulating tumor cell (CTC) analysis, blood analysis on-a-chip, and so on. The research often involves broad materials, design, technology and fabrication topics.
