Dr. Dandin’s research interests lie at the intersection of microsystems engineering, integrated circuit design, and biomedicine. His research focuses on establishing new paradigms in technology integration for interfacing electronics with biological systems. His research objectives are two-fold: first, he seeks to learn from biology to design more efficient and smarter artificial sensing and actuation systems, and second, he aims to develop translational bioengineering approaches for enabling novel diagnostics methods and therapies that address unmet needs in medicine.
