Dr Lin Haisong

Research Assistant Professor

HW - 731

Dr. Haisong Lin is currently a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). Before joining HKU, he obtained his B.S. from the Iowa State University, Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and continued as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the same research group led by Prof. Sam Emaminejad.

The mission of Dr. Lin’s group is to explore various microfluidic technologies (e.g., conventional continuous microfluidics, advanced digital microfluidics, droplet microfluidics, wearable microfluidics, etc.), and apply them to translational applications, with a particular emphasis on human health monitoring. Specifically, he uses microfluidic devices as a medium to manipulate and process biofluids/biosamples from humans, as well as to integrate with electronics and biosensors for the purpose of providing continuous and comprehensive views of an individual’s health condition. The achievement of such integrated microfluidic platforms would create a paradigm shift in healthcare: moving away from reactive medicine to proactive medicine, informing timely and preventative actions.
