The Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience has added three new faculty members. Joining the multidisciplinary community of researchers are Flavio Fenton, Gabe Kwong and Hua Wang.
Fenton, an associate professor in the School of Physics, came to the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2012 from Cornell University. Co-creator of the award winning interactive website, TheVirtualHeart.org, Fenton’s research has focused primarily on cardiac dynamics.
Kwong, assistant professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, arrived at Georgia Tech in 2014 following a postdoctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research interests include cancer nanomedicine, engineering immunity, DNA nanotechnology, biomedical micro- and nanosystems, and high throughput biotechnologies.
Wang is the Demetrius T. Paris Junior Professor and assistant professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). Winner of a 2015 National Science Foundation CAREER Award, Wang’s research interests include innovating and engineering mixed-signal, radio frequency and mm-Wave integrated systems for wireless communication and bioelectronics applications.
The addition of Fenton, Kwong and Paris bring the number of Petit Institute faculty to 172.
