Professor of Microsystems Technology, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge
Ashwin Seshia is Professor of Microsystems Technology at the Department of Engineering, where he lectures in Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems and through his research has affiliations with Nanoscience, Applied Mechanics, Enginerring for the Life Sciences, CamBridgeSens and the Cambridge Cancer Centre.
His current research area ‘Design and Fabrication of Micro- and Nano-scale Sensory Systems’ seeks to address questions central to the application of micro- and nanofabrication technology to sensors and information processing. Another area of research is the development of a MEMS-based platform, integrating microfluidic handling with precision sensing for the study of interacting biomolecular systems. His intended end-applications include low cost and portable technologies for early diagnosis of cancer and the creation of new high-throughput screening tools for drug discovery.
His current research interests include
- Microsystem Design
- Sensors and sensory processing
- Acoustic wave devices
- Resonators and oscillators
