  • Expertise

    As a young researcher, I would like to expand my research areas and get involve with more cutting-edge projects. My research plan includes many emerging technologies and their connection to one another. These technologies fall in the categories of new trends in Internet of Things, additive manufacturing technology, wearable electronics, and renewable energies. These projects can certainly be adopted to provide undergraduates/graduates students with research opportunities for their senior honors projects/thesis with valuable hands-on experiences for their future carriers.
