Research Overview

My research interests include: biomedical engineering and implantable biosensors. Currently, numerous clinical trials have indicated that continuous monitoring of key metabolites hold promise for the diagnosis and management of various disorders such as diabetes and obesity. However, the potential of continuous metabolite monitoring is currently hindered by the lack of reliable biosensing/monitoring tools. In addition, a reliable tool for data analytics and interpretation is also missing. In view of this, as an InCHIP affiliate, I intend to utilize my research experience to not only fabricate advanced biosensors but also perform data analytics to correlate a given sensor signal to a specific physiological or behavioral cause. For the latter, I intend to collaborate with various groups at InCHIP which are capable of gathering focus groups and linking patterns in behavior to the changes in key metabolites. These kind of projects will eventually lead to e-health technologies which can afford personalized medicine and care. My research will mainly draw from my past project which are focused on development of implantable biosensors that are reliable, accurate and have a long life time of 3-6 months.
