Kai-Chun Lin (Kevin) – Research Associate

Kevin received his Bachelor’s degree in Physics from National Taiwan University. He obtained his PhD degree in Materials Science Engineering in 2014 from the Arizona State University. His multidisciplinary research work on integrating biogenic silica nanostructures (i.e. diatom) with micromachined silicon substrates in a hybrid device, and some other potential applications of diatoms. Diatom frustules give researchers many inspiration and ideas for the design and production of novel nanostructured materials. Here are some applications of biogenic silica: 1) Using diatom frustule as protein sensor. 2) Using diatom nanostructures as template to fabricate nano metal materials. 3) Using diatom nanostructures to fabricate hybrid platform.

David Kinnamon – Research Engineer

David Kinnamon started in the BMNL as an undergraduate volunteer during his junior year. As part of the Department of Bioengineering’s fast track program David transitioned into the BE graduate program upon completion of his B.S. degree in May of 2015. At that point he began to pursue his M.S. degree as part of the BMNL team. He completed his M.S. degree in one year, graduating in August of 2016 with his thesis entitled: “Development of a wearable electrochemical biosensor for alcohol consumption monitoring”. He is currently a Research Engineer at BMNL with focus being on the design and fabrication of flexible sensing electrodes, and implementation of portable instrumentation towards portable biosensors.
