  Chuan-Jian Zhong focuses on the design, synthesis, characterization, and application of novel strategies and functional nanomaterials for solving challenging problems in sustainable energy production, conversion and storage (e.g., fuel cells and batteries), and in chemical, biological, and biomedical detection and intervention (e.g., chemical sensors and biosensors) 

  Yu Chen's research addresses security in computer networks and large scale distributed/Grid computer systems; Internet security protocols; Internet infrastructure security; trust, security, and privacy in wireless; embedded and pervasive computing; and reconfigurable /embedded computer architectures.

  Ronald Miles' current research interests include the development of biologically-inspired microacoustic sensors. His work led to the discovery of a highly innovative mechanism for directional hearing in the fly. He is currently developing directional microphones for hearing aids that are inspired by the fly's ears.

  Shahrzad Towfighian's group is devloping analytical models and experimental verifications of MEMS to thoroughly investigate their linear and nonlinear dynamic responses. A comprehensive model is then used to   improve MEMS performance for applications in energy harvesing, microdevices, and biosensors.

 Ahyeon Koh's group is developing novel biosensors in the combination of fundamental studies and pioneering engineering efforts that offer multi-disciplinary research opportunities.

  Daehan Won's research interest is in large scale data analysis via mathematical progrmming and algorithms. His modeling efforst deal with quantitative descriptions of biosensors kinetic behavior of bioreceptors and targets.
