Highlighting New Faculty

Associate Professor Martin Han, a joint appointment in the Institute of Materials Science, researches implantable microelectrode arrays to treat neurological disorders using semiconductor fabrication technologies.  He is also interested in the interface of the brain and microelectrode devices.  Dr. Han’s research is supported by the NIH.


Assistant Professor Insoo Kim’s research narrows the gaps between larger clinical grade devices and newly developed mobile and wearable health sensors in terms of hardware, algorithms, and signal processing techniques.  Dr. Kim’s research develops wearable biosensors, bio-circuit systems and therapeutic devices for use in diagnostics and monitoring of chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and sleep disorder.


Assistant Professor Kristin Morgan received an NIH Program for Excellence & Equity in Research Fellowship and the Lyman T. Johnson Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Kentucky.  Dr. Morgan’s research will work with the Department of Kinesiology to study how changes in muscle function alter gait patterns and joint stability.


Assistant Professor Sina Shahbazmohamadi received his PhD from UConn, where he also pursued a postdoctoral fellowship in 3D imaging techniques.  Dr. Shahbazmohamadi will continue to research biomedical imaging techniques such as micro-CT and X-ray imaging, Terahertz imaging, and micro/nano electromechanical systems.  His work has been funded by the NSF and the DOD.
