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 scalable fabrication approaches for next-generation bio-inspired and/or bio-integrated electronic systems to bring the solutions to the grand challenges faced in our society. At present, our research program mainly consists of three themes: (i) development and high-throughput synthesis of novel smart soft materials with unprecedented multifunctionalities and adaptive properties; (ii) design and clean-room-free fabrication of next-generation bio-integrated electronics with customized multimodalities and outstanding, chronical bio-compatibility that can blur the biotic-abiotic dissimilarities in structures, mechanics and biochemistry; (iii) deterministic assembly of 3D adaptive systems and multifunctional 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.
