    Title: Research Professor
    Office: 205 SEO, MC 063 Phone: 6-5946
    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    My research interests involves deposition of thin films offering improved functionality in electronic components. In past years, research activities have been oriented towards atomic layer deposition (ALD) of metal oxides pushing limits of scalability of fabrication to the nanometer scale. More recent direction of my research is in extending functionality of electronic circuits onto large scale flexible plastic substrates via printing novel composite materials with micron-level resolution to serve needs in bioengineering and mechanical engineering. Recent advances in printed electronics now permit incorporation of functionalized nanoparticles of precision metals, carbon nanotubes, and metal oxide-polymer composites offering wide range of advanced materials to further enhance functionality of printed circuits. Of particular interest is in the printing of strain sensors with integration of signal processing capabilities and semiconductor chip technology within printed circuitry.
