About Dr. Zhao
Dr. Yi Zhao is an associate professor in Biomedical Engineering at The Ohio State University and the lead investigator of the Laboratory for Biomedical Microsystems and . Dr. Zhao graduated from Tsinghua University, China with B.S. and M.S. degrees both in Mechanical Engineering and Ph.D. in Manufacturing Engineering, with an emphasis on Bio-Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (BioMEMS). He joined The Ohio State University in 2006 and founded the Laboratory for Biomedical Micorsysytems. His research interests include design and development of medical devices at multiple length scales; lab-on-chip devices; microfluidics, and physical and chemical sensors/actuators.
We are actively recruiting visiting scholars and students, graduate and undergraudate researchers, and K-12 researchers. If you are interested in our research topics and are motivated to perform research in the field, please contact Dr. Zhao for details.
