Longyi Chen

Longyi Chen is a CNST/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Nanoscale Imaging and Spectroscopy Group. He received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and Technology, and an M.S. in Chemical Technology from Sun Yat-sen University, China and a Ph.D. in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering from University of Western Ontario, Canada. His doctoral research focused on fabricating nanostructured glucose biosensors utilizing fluorescent, magnetic nanomaterials. Longyi is working with Mandy Esch on engineering of on-chip nanobiosensors and multi-tissue body-on-chip devices with integrated nanosensors.
