About

Research Interests:

  • Neuroimaging
  • Biofluidics
  • Microsystems
  • Small animal models

Dr. Jung’s research interests are in the development of systems and methods to investigate physical properties of small organisms (e.g. zebrafish larvae) to solve problems in biology and medicine. Dr. Jung is particularly interested in applying micro- and nanotechnologies to address questions in neuroscience.
