Abstract

The focus of my research lies on the integrated scientific study of bio-interfaced nano-electromechanical systems for advancing healthcare. In this talk, I will present research works on bio-interfaced nanomechanics in nanoparticle concentration system which studied the methodologies and principles of nanostructured biosensing systems for in-vitro bioparticles detection and analysis in disease diagnostics. Afterwards, I will continue to talk about my ongoing research on bio-integrated electromechanics in soft electronic system which investigates biomimetic mechanical systems and stretchable nanoelectronics for human health monitoring on the skin. Lastly, I will share my vision on future research; the methodologies from molecular concentration and nanomembrane-based tissue interface to a new class of technology, which is adaptable for smart, multiplexing diagnostics/therapeutics with mechanically invisible lamination of materials on bio-tissues. The ultimate goal of my research is to seek a solution for Smart Hybrid Healthcare and Human-machine-interface System, framed by interfacial mechanics, advanced materials, nanofabrication, and biological analysis.
