    Research in Microelectronics and Neural Engineering

    See publications


Kang Lab is a research group in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at DGIST (Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology), South Korea. We are committed to work on engineering problems at the interface of Microelectronics (Transistors, TFTs, Micro-fabrication, Sensors) and Bioelectronics/Biomedical engineering with the hope that various health-related challenges can be overcome with the next generation microelectronics.

We are particularly interested in the following research areas: (1) Novel microelectronics devices and fabrication processes for the next generation electronics and more efficient bio-signal recording/monitoring; (2) New neural engineering technologies for less invasive bio-signal modulation; (3) Functional nanomaterial microfabrication (e.g., printing) for various sensors; (4) Machine learning based large bio-signal data analysis; (5) Novel devices and fabrication processes for IoT security and anti-counterfeit applications.

We are a part of Advanced Electronic Device Research Group (AEDRG) at DGIST EECS (Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science).
