My Research Interests

Dr. Ke Du is currently a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California-Berkeley. Before that, he received his Ph.D. degree from the Mechanical Engineering department at Stevens Institute of Technology in 2014. He obtained his M.S. degree from the University of South Florida in 2008 and B.S. degree from University of Science and Technology, Beijing in 2007, respectively.

Trained as a nanotechnology scientist, Ke has authored or co-authored over ten articles in journals such as Advanced Functional Materials, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, Small (frontispiece), ACS Nano, and Nanotechnology (cover article). However, inspired by the tragic outbreak of Ebola in 2014, he decided to leave his comfortable zone in nanotechnology and challenge the field of hemorrhagic fever detection such as Ebola Virus by using microfluidics and optical waveguide technique. He joined Mathies lab in January 2015.
