Research focus

The Shepard Group focuses on mixed analog-digital CMOS integrated circuit design. We are addressing a diverse set of research topics, a growing number of which are associated with exploiting custom CMOS microelectronics for nontraditional applications in chemistry and biology and combining CMOS electronics with non-traditional materials for novel applications. As a result, students in the group become not only top-notch mixed-signal IC designers but are immersed in multidisciplinary research involving tools and techniques in chemistry, biology, device physics, and nanofabrication.
