            Dr. Derek Ho received his B.A.Sc. (first class) in Computer Engineering from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada in 2005. He received his M.A.Sc. from UBC in 2007, specializing in the area of radio-frequency integrated circuits. Derek received his Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada in 2013, where he worked on CMOS fluorescence DNA analysis lab-on-a-chips.

 

Derek was the recipient of the Postgraduate Scholarship and Undergraduate Student Research Award from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. He was also awarded the Ontario Graduate Scholarship in Science and Technology, and the Mary H. Beatty Fellowship. He has held several engineering internships including at PMC-Sierra, Burnaby, BC, Canada, where he participated in the development of communication integrated circuits.

 

Derekˇ¦s research interests are highly interdisciplinary. He is especially interested in research that incorporates electronics, signal processing, optical imaging/spectroscopy, analytical chemistry, microfluidics, and biology. His current research emphasis includes micro and nano-electronic devices, circuits, and systems for applications such as optical, chemical, and electrical biosensing, spectral bioimaging, lenseless microscopy, lab-on-a-chips, and rapid medical diagnostics.
