HowardWelcome! I am currently a senior researcher working with Professor John A. Rogers at University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. I was born in Taiwan, raised in Hong Kong and educated in the United States. I received my B.S. from University of California, Berkeley in 2010 and worked with Chancellor Robert J. Birgeneau from 2008-2011. After graduation, I joined Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory as Beamline scientist assistant until Fall 2011.

My research interests include understanding the properties of engineered functional electronic and polymeric materials; developing novel processing strategies to realize flexible and stretchable micro-electronics and sensors; and exploring new diagnostic tools and healthcare monitoring systems. I enjoy fundamental science research and transforming the findings into engineering solutions to solve grand technological challenges in the field of biology and medicine.

I coordinate the operations of Rogers research lab with more than hundred members and lead my own research team of 5 undergraduate researchers. I have authored and co-authored more than 25 journal papers including Cell, Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Nature Communication, Physics Review B, Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, Advanced Healthcare Materials, IEEE Translational Biomedical Engineering, Small, Biointerphases…etc.  I am an invited speaker at IEEE NANOMED 2015 and received many other international recognition. I also serve as the reviewer for Wiley and Springer journals.

Please find more information about me on my Google Scholar profile and LinkedIn profile.
