Nanolab is an interdisciplinary research group at Tufts University led by Dr. Sameer Sonkusale.

At Nanolab, we are interested in answering the following questions: "How can micro- and nano-electronics benefit lifesciences and medicine?", "Can we build single-chip sensors and instruments on silicon CMOS", and "how do we explore emerging concepts (e.g. metamaterials, plasmonics) and novel materials (e.g. carbon nanotubes, graphene) for new and improved functions in our devices, circuits and sensors?".

Some current research focus areas in our group are:

  1. Nanoelectrochemical Systems on Silicon
  2. CMOS Image Sensors for Scientific Imaging
  3. CMOS-Nano Integration: CMOS For Nanoassembly and Nanofabrication
  4. Circuits and Systems for Wearable and Implantable Biomedical Microdevices
  5. Analog to Information Converters and Compressed Sensing Front Ends
  6. Asynchronous Analog and Mixed Signal Design
  7. Active Metamaterial Devices, Circuits and Systems
  8. Digitally Assisted Analog Design

Sonkusale receives NAS Arab-America Frontiers Fellowship

Dr. Sonkusale (Tufts) received two  seed grants from the National Academies Arab-American Frontiers program to pursue collaboration on developing low cost platforms for medical diagnostics for the developing world. In one project, lab-on-chip platform will be developed for detection of enteric viruses, in collaboration with Dr. Marrakchi of ISBATT in Tunisia. And in another project, paper based diagnostics will be developed for detection of protein biomarkers of cancer, in collaboration with Dr. Al-Alhouli of German Jordanian University in Jordan.
