Kuo-Tang Liao is a CNST/UMD Research Scientist in the Nanofabrication Research Group. He received a B.S. in Applied Chemistry from Providence University, Taiwan and a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from National Sun Yat-sen University, Taiwan. He worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in National Taiwan University (NTU) and at Academia Sinica (AS), Taiwan and then as a Research Associate at University of Virginia (UVA) and AS running a collaborative project between the two institutions. He has extensive experience developing electrochemical methods to analyze biomaterials for immunoassays. At NTU, AS, and UVA, he developed both carbon nanotube and silicon nanowire ion-selective field-effect transistors to detect neurotransmitters. He also developed nanoconstriction devices to pre-concentrate low abundance samples. Kuo-Tang is working with Samuel M. Stavis to develop nanofluidic devices and methods to characterize nanoparticles and biomolecules.
