Kwang W. Oh serves as an Associate Professor at University at Buffalo, The State University of New York (SUNY at Buffalo) where he leads Sensors and MicroActuators Learning Lab (SMALL) (http://SMALL.Buffalo.edu or http://MicroTAS.org). He received his B.S. degree in physics from Chonbuk National University, Korea, in 1995. He earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering (http://www.BioMEMS.uc.edu) from University of Cincinnati in 1997 and 2001, respectively. Prior to joining SUNY at Buffalo, he worked at Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT), Korea (http://www.sait.samsung.co.kr), where he developed micro-PCR and LOC platforms for clinical diagnostics. He has an excellent record of publications with more than 86 technical papers, including two review papers on microvalves (J. Micromech. Microeng. 16, R13–R39, 2006) and microfluidic circuits (Lab Chip, 12, 515–545, 2012), three book chapters, and 24 patents. He is serving as a Cochair of the Symposium Section of Micro & Nano Fluidics, NanoTech 2012 (Santa Clara, Calif) and NanoTech 2012 (Washington, DC) (http://www.techconnectworld.com/Nanotech2012/sym/micro_nano_fluidics.html). His current research focuses on microfluidic networks, droplet-based microfluidics, 3D cell culture platforms, microvalves and actuators, and microfluidic applications for terahertz spectroscopy, platelet aggregation, and metamaterials. His research is extensively funded through NSF (National Science Foundation), NYSTAR (The New York State Foundation for Science, Technology and Innovation), KIST (Korean Institute of Science Technology), and UB (University at Buffalo).
