  1. Two Ph.D. positions are available.
    The students are expected to fabricate nanostructures, design nanophotonic or nanofluidic device architectures, and perform characterization. The successful candidates are expected to have solid background in physics and engineering, with a Bachelor’s or a Master’s degree in one of the following programs: physics, applied physics, electrical engineering, material science, and biomedical engineering. The positions are expected in a research assistantship or a fellowship. Please send a CV, a personal statement, and contact information for three references to
  2. Two openings for master students.
    Positions available for strong applicants on design, fabrication, and characterization of novel fluidic and optic nanostructures. The applicant is expected to leverage the various nanofabrication and characterization resources available at my group (laser writer, nanoimprinter, spinners, fume hoods, transmission/reflection spectroscopy, fluorescence imaging, life-time measurement, etc.) and collaborate with my group members on cross-disciplinary research projects. The students will also participate in lab and equipment management. The candidates are expected to have solid hands-on experience, currently enrolled at ASU at engineering, physics, biology, or chemistry departments. Tuition will NOT be covered. Generally no salaries are provided, but outstanding students may have exceptions.  Please send your resume and transcripts to
  3. Openings for undergrad students at ASU.
    Project 1: Nanofluidic Chips for Exosome Biomarker Diagnosis. The student has the opportunity to participate in a NSF-sponsored project to work with a multidisciplinary team and our collaborators at a different university on how we can use nanofluidics to purify and detect exosomes. The student is expected to perform numerical simulations to understand the fluidic interactions of nanoparticles with nanostructures. Please send your resume and transcripts to
