We are a highly interdisciplinary research group of scientists and engineers working on soft electronics and advanced manufacturing at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Our research interests center on creating new soft functional materials, exploring novel device designs, and developing scalable fabrication approaches for next-generation bio-inspired and/or bio-integrated electronics to bring the solutions to the grand challenges faced in human society. At present, our research program mainly consists of three themes: (i) synthesis and characterizations of multifunctional soft electronic materials with unprecedented properties; (ii) development and applications of next-generation bio-integrated electronics with customized multimodalities and chronic bio-compatibility, which can blur the biotic-abiotic dissimilarities in structures, mechanics and biochemistry; (iii) exploring cost-effective, scalable manufacturing of bio-integrated electronics to facilitate their disposable (i.e., one-time use) and practical applications. More details can be found here.
We are looking for highly passionate and self-motivated undergraduate, master and Ph.D. students and postdocs to join us. If you are interested in working on soft electronics and advanced manufacturing, please feel free to send your resume to Dr. Yan at yanzheng@missouri.edu.
