Our research activities are in the areas of transport phenomena,
reaction engineering, materials processing and micro/nano
fabrication leading to the technology development of chemical
sensors - utilizing both printable flexible electronics based
platforms as well as conventional silicon electronics based
platforms. We study the physical modification and chemical
modification to fabricate functional sensing surfaces, transport
phenomena of the analytes to these surfaces (including in
microfluidic units), the specific recognition reactions at these
surfaces, charge transport in the semiconducting materials, and
device design (including transistors and arrays). There is an effort
towards understanding the sensing mechanisms. These chemical sensors
(including biosensors) have applications in healthcare,
environmental monitoring, industrial safety, and security.
