Park, Sung Il individual record
Assistant Professor

My lab conducts three lines of research; wireless optogenetics, biomedicine, wireless power transmission into biological tissues, and photodynamic therapy for gastrointestinal cancers.

We are developing soft neural interface platforms and soft wireless platform electronics that can control neural interfaces and integrate data transmission, signal processing, and power management. These works involve fabrication of stretchable electronic systems and development of novel antenna systems and integrated circuit systems. In parallel, we are studying novel methods to maximize wireless power transmission into biological tissues.
