Prof. Arokia Nathan

University of Cambridge


Prof. Ng is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of California San Diego (UCSD), USA. She received her PhD in Physical Chemistry in 2006 under the supervision of Professor John Marohn. Subsequently she worked at Palo Alto Research Center (PARC, a Xerox Company) before joining UCSD in 2015. Her projects involved engineering solution materials and inventing new devices and systems for ink-jet and other types of digital fabrication. Some example prototypes include conformal organic photosensors for x-ray imaging, tactile sensors for electronic skin, and printed circuits for sensing in smart packaging application. Dr. Ng’s work on printed systems has received the 2012 Innovation Award from Flextech Alliance and has been named Runner-up for the Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Award. She has more than ten patents and over 50 publications. She is a member of the External Advisory Board for Partnership for Research and Education in Materials (PREM) and is on the Editorial Board of the journal Flexible Printed Electronics.

Prof. Nathan (FIEEE, FIET) holds the Professorial Chair of Photonic Systems and Displays in the Department of Engineering, Cambridge University. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Alberta. Following post-doctoral years at LSI Logic Corp., USA and ETH Zurich, Switzerland, he joined the University of Waterloo where he held the DALSA/NSERC Industrial Research Chair in sensor technology and subsequently the Canada Research Chair in nano-scale flexible circuits. He was a recipient of the 2001 NSERC E.W.R. Steacie Fellowship. In 2006, he moved to the UK to take up the Sumitomo Chair of Nanotechnology at the London Centre for Nanotechnology, University College London, where he received the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award.  He has held Visiting Professor appointments at the Physical Electronics Laboratory, ETH Zürich and the Engineering Department, Cambridge University, UK. He has published over 500 papers in the field of sensor technology and CAD, and thin film transistor electronics, and is a co-author of four books. He has over 50 patents filed/awarded and has founded/co-founded four spin-off companies. He serves on technical committees and editorial boards in various capacities. He is a Chartered Engineer (UK), Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (UK), Fellow of IEEE (USA), and an IEEE/EDS Distinguished Lecturer.

He is currently a Director of Advanced Display Research Centre (ADRC) established in 2000. He is a Fellow of SID and he had served as Program Chair and General Chair of SID and IMID. He initiated the International TFT Conference 13 years before. He was awarded George Smith Award from IEEE in 2012, Slotto Owaki Prize from SID in 2015 and many awards in Korea.

"Biosensors based on thin film transistors"

Dr. Feng Yan has research interests on organic electronics, graphene, thin film transistors, biosensors, solar cells and smart materials. He received his PhD degree in physics from Nanjing University in China. Then he joined the Engineering Department of Cambridge University in Feb 2001 as a Research Associate and joined National Physical Laboratory in UK in April 2006 as a Higher Research Scientist. He became an Assistant Professor at the Department of Applied Physics of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in September 2006 and was promoted to Associate Professor in July 2012. He has published more than 150 papers in peer-reviewed journals, including Adv. Mater., Nature Commun, Nano Lett. and ACS Nano, and given ~40 invited talks in international conferences. He has been working on transistor-based biosensors for more than 10 years and has successfully developed various types of high-performance biosensors for the detection of glucose, dopamine, DNA, protein, cells and ions, etc.
