Joel Therrien, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Nanomanufacturing Center of Excellence, Biomedical Engineering, PERC, LoCSST
Prof. Therrien’s research interests include two dimensional semiconductors, SiC derived from polymers, and biosensors. His group is working on developing wide bandgap 2-D semiconductors to compliment graphene. Also, Prof. Therrien is exploring applications of a novel approach to making semiconductor grade SiC. They are using this technique to make MEMS, transistors, and solar cells. Finally, in collaboration with colleagues in biology and chemistry, his group is working on developing a living cell based biosensor.
