Research Interests

Shyam Aravamudhan’s interests lie at the intersection of micro/nanotechnology and life sciences, with an overarching goal to question and better understand how the biological system functions. The hypothesis is that by using the unique phenomena at the micro and nano-length scales and by shrinking devices down to a scale comparable to typical biological system fundamental biological questions can be addressed.

His current research interests:

  1. Nanobioelectronics
  2. Microsystems and Nanotechnology Tools for Disease Diagnostics and Regenerative Medicine
  3. Structure-property relationship in nanostructures
  4. Neural Interfaces
  5. 3D system integration
