Q&A with CFN User Davood Shahrjerdi

Combining the unique properties of emerging nanomaterials with advanced silicon-based electronics, NYU's Shahrjerdi engineers nano-bioelectronics

Davood Shahrjerdi is an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at New York University (NYU) and a principal investigator at the NYU Laboratory for Nano-Engineered Hybrid Integrated Systems. Shahrjerdi, who holds a doctorate in solid-state electronics from The University of Texas at Austin, engineers nanodevices for sensing and life science applications through integrating the unique properties of emerging nanomaterials with advanced silicon-based electronics. For the past two years, he has been using facilities at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials—a U.S. Department of Energy  Office of Science User Facility at Brookhaven National Laboratory—to fabricate and characterize these nanodevices.
