Interests

Sohmyung Ha's research aims at advancing the engineering and applications of silicon integrated technology interfacing with biology in a variety of forms ranging from implantable biomedical devices to unobtrusive wearable sensors. The engineering advances in the design of integrated circuits and system components target high performance, miniature form factor, and power autonomy in fully integrated interfaces. Targeted applications include self-powered biosensors for wearable health monitoring, subcutaneous glucose sensors for continuous monitoring in diabetes patients, scalable high-resolution retinal prostheses, and minimally invasive brain-computer interfaces for closed-loop remediation of neurological disorders such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease.

His research interests include biomedical integrated circuit and system design with focus on brain-computer interfaces, neural sensors/actuators, retinal prostheses, integrated glucose sensors, and wearable biosignal sensors.
