Welcome to the Sihong Wang Research Group
Our group focuses on the development of soft polymeric materials and devices that can merge electronics with biological systems in both mechanical & chemical characteristics, as well as energy flow. The target is to provide a new technological platform for biomedical studies. These developments largely rely on the fundamental study of the combinations of exceptional (opto)electronic/energy functionalities, mechanical softness, and bio-compatibility, in single material systems.
We have openings for postdocs, graduate students, and undergrad students. Candidates with backgrounds/interests in polymer chemistry & physics, organic electronics, bio-electronics, optoelectronics, electrochemistry are welcomed to contact Prof. Wang with your CV.
