Gongchen Sun is a postdoctoral fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology, under the supervision of Prof. Hang Lu. He graduated from Peking University with a B.S. in Microelectronics and received his Ph.D. from University of Notre Dame in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, advised by Prof. Hsueh-Chia Chang. During his PhD, he invented high-flux electrokinetically-driven ionic circuits for rapid pretreatment of molecular disease biomarker pretreatment and integration of multiplexed ion current biosensors in point-of-care cancer diagnostic platforms. During his postdoc, he designed a high-throughput microswimmer trapping approach by interfacial capillary flow and a rapid in situ RNA imaging method by electrokinetic ion pump, which enables multi-level phenotyping in model organism C. elegans for aging and neurodevelopment studies. His current research interests include fundamental microfluidics and electrokinetics, high-throughput microsystems for systems neuroscience, point-of-care diagnostics, and environmental monitoring.
