Prof. Levent Yobas received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees both in biomedical engineering from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH. He was with the BioMEMS Group, Standard MEMS, Inc., Southbridge and Burlington, MA, developing MEMS for drug screening technologies. From 2002 to 2010, he was with the Institute of Microelectronics, Agency for Science, Technology, and Research (A∗STAR), Singapore, where he was a Senior Research Engineer and then a Member of the Technical Staff in MEMS, BioMEMS, and bioelectronics. He also held adjunct faculty positions with the Bioengineering Division, National University of Singapore, and the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University. He is currently with the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering and the Division of Biomedical Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Kowloon, Hong Kong. He has mainly published in the areas of nucleic acid analysis, patch clamp electrophysiology, and droplet microfluidics. His earlier work dealt with integrated electrostatic microvalves for a MEMSbased low-cost low-power refreshable Braille display system. His research is mainly focused on silicon-based micro/nanofabrication technologies for life sciences, drug discovery, and point-of-care diagnostics.
