Sangwook Chu to receive Outstanding Graduate Assistant Award from UMD Graduate School

Sangwook Chu to receive Outstanding Graduate Assistant Award from UMD Graduate School


Sangwook Chu, a graduate student in ECE and ISR, is one of approximately 80 winners of the University of Maryland Graduate School's 2016–2017 Outstanding Graduate Assistant Award. The award recognizes the outstanding contributions that graduate assistants provide to students, faculty, departments, administrative units and the university as a whole. Winners of the award are among the top 2 percent of GAs on campus in a given year. The awards will be given at the annual Fellowship and Award Celebration on May 11.

Chu is advised by ISR Director Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR) and is a member of the MEMS Sensors and Actuators Laboratory. His research focuses on integration of biological nanomaterials such as genetically-engineered Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), with three-dimensional microsystems components towards development of advanced bioelectronics. Particularly, Chu has worked on developing 3D bio-patterning technology allowing controlled functionalization of TMV particles onto densely arranged microstructures. Currently, Chu is investigating potentials of the enabling technology and TMV particles for development of advanced/miniaturized enzyme-based bioelectronics including glucose sensors and enzymatic biofuel-cells.
