maung (malcolm) khaing Oo, Phd

Research Investigator, Biomedical Engineering


Dr. Khaing Oo received his B.S. (Hons) from Yangon University, M.S. from National University of Singapore, and Ph.D. from Stevens Institute of Technology in 2010. His research activities include sensors and sensing systems for healthcare solutions, especially in ultra-sensitive detection and identification of biochemical molecules in aqueous or vapor phase, development of rapid and sensitive point-of-care diagnostic devices (e.g., Optofluidic ELISA), high resolution hyper-spectral imaging using advanced functional materials and photonic crystal fiber, nanotechnology-enabled Surface-enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS), targeted drug delivery, and enhanced generation of reactive species during Photodynamic Therapy of cancer to improve specific cancer treatment. In addition, he has professional experience in computer aided design and engineering, and project management. He served as a reviewer for peer-reviewed journals in the areas of optical bio/chemical sensors and nanotechnology.
