The Niu group's current work focused on wearable devices and energy harvesting systems for biomedical applications. Our research interest includes wearable electronics for various chronic disease management (focusing on using electrical, optical, mechanical, and thermal methods to extract human physiological signals, such as electrocardiogram (ECG), photoplethysmography (PPG), electromyography (EMG), body temperature etc.), stretchable electronics (stretchable materials, devices, and sub-circuits), energy harvesting technologies, hydrogels, soft robotics, and machine learning algorithms for biosignal processing.

Currently, Dr. Niu only has openings for master and undergraduate students. We have commitment to create a inclusive environment for everyone in the team. If you are interested to join our team, please send your CV to Dr. Niu (
