We are interested in improving the ways that integrated electronic systems interface with the physical world, by designing new high-performance electronic circuits and combining them with new materials and biophysical systems.
Congratulations to graduates Max Gottesman (ScM), Stephen Weinreich (ScB), and Jeanette Miranda (ScB), and welcome Andrew Tian and Sam Friedman to the group as undergraduate summer fellows!
Congratulations to Stephen Weinreich for receiving the Brown University Distinguished Thesis Prize for his honors thesis, "A Wireless Glucose Sensor on a Paper Substrate"
We are starting a new project to build therapeutic devices for Parkinson's disease, and we are looking for undergraduate or ScM students interested in embedded systems and wireless electronics. If you may be interested, send us an email for more details.

Embedded Microelectronics for the Life Sciences.
Nanopore sensors, ion channels, and electrophysiology We are developing high-performance electronic systems for nanopore sensors for the next generation of single-molecule DNA sequencing, as well as looking into new ways to measure and use ion channel proteins with electronic systems.
Mixed-signal electronics We want to be at the cutting edge of extending and applying mixed-signal design techniques to ultra-low-power and ultra-low-noise applications.
Ubiquitous sensing and computing We think everything should be electronically active, and are exploring new ways to integrate electronic features into things around us.
We currently have an opening for a postdoctoral research associate. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in biology, chemistry, biophysics, or a related field, an interest in electrophysiology and instrumentation, and strong references. If you are interested please send your CV and a description of your research interests.
There are multiple projects available for undergraduate and masters students. Please contact Prof. Rosenstein by email if you would like to discuss a research project or thesis.
