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.

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.
