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 focus on developing novel soft functional materials and exploring their applications in next-generation bio-inspired and/or bio-integrated electronic systems to bring the solutions to the grand challenges faced in our society. Presently, our research program mainly consists of three themes: (i) development and high-throughput synthesis of new smart soft materials with unprecedented multifunctionalities and adaptive properties; (ii) design and scalable fabrications of next-generation bio-integrated electronics with customized multimodalities and chronic bio-compatibility that can blur the biotic-abiotic dissimilarities in structures, mechanics and biochemistry; (iii) design and deterministic assembly of adaptive 3D multifunctional systems and tissue interfacing platforms. 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.
