Pao Tai Lin, an electrical and computer engineer whose research focuses on flexible electronics, has joined the Center for Remote Health Technologies and Systems (CRHTS) at Texas A&M University.

As a researcher in the center, which is a member of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), Lin will conduct work that focuses on developing flexible optoelectronics and multifunctional mid-infrared materials that will enable wearable biomedical sensors for remote health monitoring.

Lin, who received his Ph.D. from Northwestern University, has investigated mid-infrared photonic circuits for chip-scale and label-free sensing that can detect early-stage diabetes, asthma and other chronic diseases.

In addition to his research appointment at CRHTS, Lin is assistant professor in the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at Texas A&M.

About the Center for Remote Health Technologies and Systems (CRHTS)
