Current Students (A/Z)
Ali is a Ph.D. Student in our group. His research is mainly focused on transport analysis of bioparticles in micro/nano fluidic systems under linear and nonlinear electrokinetic forces, statistical analysis of subpopulations in cell/microbial species, and developing new techniques to study dielectrophoresis and electrorotation of biological samples, Ali is a foodie. While not in the lab, you can find him in a restaurant where he is following a goal of tasting in 5000 different restaurants in US.

Vahid is a Ph.D. Student in our group. He is interested in developing new electrical circuits for biomedical applications.
Walter is a Ph.D. Student in our group. He is interested in developing new devices for studying electrokinetic phenomena.
"Yi-Hsuan is a Ph.D. Student in our group. She is interested in the applications of biological samples (cancer cells, bacteria, parasites, etc.) on microfluidic devices. she hopes to use her biomedical science background while integrating her current study in electrical engineering to help address more complicated biological unknowns. When she is not in the lab, you can find her camping in the backcountry, pursuing her dream of camping in as many different places in her life as she can."
