Welcome to MEMS and Autonomous Integrated Microsystems (AIM) Laboratory

Dr. Tao Li is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Cincinnati. Previously he was a research-track faculty member (Associate Research Scientist) and Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, as well as the Center for Wireless Integrated MicroSensing and Systems (WIMS2) at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Dr. Li’s research interests include MEMS and microsystems, micromachined sensors and actuators, microfluidic devices, nontraditional microfabrication technologies, microsystem packaging and integration, and sensor electronic interfaces and embedded systems.  Example applications include implantable/ingestible biomedical devices for sensing/sampling/actuating, wearable devices for healthcare, smart medical tools with embedded sensors/actuators, in vitro devices for biomedical studies, harsh environment monitoring devices for challenging natural or industrial conditions, sensors for Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), etc. He served on the Organizing Committee of the IEEE Sensors Conference from 2019 to 2022 and as a Track Chair in 2023. He currently serves as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Sensors Journal.
