Dr Yan Liu

I'm a research fellow in Centre of Bio-inspired Technology, EEE department.


I started my PhD study on ISFETs based smart chemical sensing systems under supersvison of Prof. Chris Toumazou in EE, Imperial College. Since then, I have been working with supervision of Dr Timothy Constandinou to develop next generation neural interface NGNI. I'm currently working at development low power low noise circuits for neural recording and signal processing..


My Research interest includes:

1: Biochemical and chemical sensors.

2: Sensor interface.

3. Lab-on-chip Applications

3: Low power and Low noise analogue circuit for electrophysiology recordings.

4: Analogue signal processing circuits for neural signal

5: CMOS Data converter.

6. Power management.
