  • Biography
    Erkin Seker's research experience spans the areas of nanoporous metal synthesis, MEMS-based mechanical characterization, microfluidic flow control techniques, biomedical and bioanalytical applications of porous metals and microfluidics, and biomedical systems analysis. He used microfabrication technology to characterize nanoporous gold (np-Au), a promising candidate for functional surface coatings, and has made significant contributions to the materials science community on np-Au's structure-property relationship. He studied np-Au's interactions with biomolecules and developed microfluidic flow control schemes for facile liquid manipulation. His latest research efforts include the development of multi-functional neural electrodes for diagnostic and therapeutic applications, as well as engineering microfluidic platforms for studying cell-material interactions at multiple scales., a resource for nanoscience and nanotechnology, is supported by the National Science Foundation and other funding agencies.
