Meet the team

Founded in July 2017, meLAB aims to promote and support engineering and physical science research in microelectronics design, spintronics, sensors, and energy harvesting. Our research is broadly ranging from theoretical, simulation, design, fabrication and experimental work in fundamental physics to applications of wearable and implantable electronics. meLAB is affiliated with the Communications, Sensing and Imaging (CSI) group and Centre for Medical and Inductrial Ultrasonics (C-MIU).
In 2021, we founded a spin-out Neuranics Limited that is building next-generation magnetic sensors for neural interfaces.
