The Principal Investigator

Dr. Yu Hwa Lo's Headshot

Yu-Hwa Lo (Distinguished William SC Chang Professor of ECE Department) received his Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from UC Berkeley in 1987.  He worked at Bellcore (Telcordia) as a technical staff member from 1988-1990, and became an assistant and then associate professor at Cornell University in 1991 and 1996.  He became a professor of UCSD in 1999.  He is the director of the UCSD Nano3 Facility, and the director of San Diego Nanotechnology Infrastructure (SDNI), an NSF sponsored national center for nanotechnology infrastructure.

His research interests are in photonic devices using novel condensed matter materials and physics principles, biophotonics and imaging, microfluidics, lab-on-chip, and medical devices and systems.  His group publishes their work in academic journals and commercializes their research via licensing, technology transformation, and forming startups. He is a fellow of the Optical Society of America and the IEEE.
