Biography

I have been an Assistant Professor at USU since July 2016. Before then, I was an Assistant Professor at the University of South Dakota for nine months.

Teaching Interests

BioMEMS, biomaterials, biophysics, microfluidics, tissue/cell engineering,

Research Interests

BioMEMS is an interdisciplinary research that uses microfabrication technology to address biomedical needs. My lab is particularly interested in the microtissue engineering of neuron, tumor and stem cell. The application includes neuroscience, neuro-engineering, regenerative medicine, cell assay, and cellular therapy.
