Yang Gao, PhD
Yang earned her Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from Drexel in June 2015. She completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering at Xi'an Jiaotong University in China. She started her research work in the Nanophotonics lab since 2009 on Nano materials synthesis and devices for single cell applications. Outside of research, she loves traveling, reading and cooking.
Yang is interested in carbon nanopipette and carbon nanotube for cellular probing. Working with a strong professors group from ECE, MSE and Surgery department of Drexel, she is focusing on integrating multiple tasks into the nanoprobe and developing new mechanics of detecting. She is also working with collaborator from Queen College, New York on optimizing the carbon nano pipette as nano-electrode for electro-chemistry applications and collaborator from Temple University for localized micro perfusion system for neuron applications
