The active areas of research are at the interface of Photonics, BioMEMs, and Neuroscience. Using basic principles of physics and advanced engineering techniques, Prof. Chamanzar’s group is designing and implementing novel devices and methods to address outstanding needs in biology and medicine. The main application areas of interest are Neuroscience and Biophotonics. Research on Neuroengineering includes developing next generation multimodal (Acousto-opto-electrical) neural interfaces to understand the neural basis of brain function and realize functional brain-machine interfaces. The Biophotonics front is focused on developing efficient hybrid photonic-plasmonic-fluidic on-chip systems for point of care diagnostics, environmental monitoring, imaging, and spectroscopy. The scope of research encompasses theoretical design and simulation, fabrication and packaging, experimental benchtop characterization, as well as in-vivo, in-vitro, and ex-vivo tests on biological systems.
