What we do

The Rivnay Group engineers organic bioelectronic materials, devices and systems for interfacing between the complex world of biology and traditional optoelectronics.

Our interests involve understanding the unique active properties of organic (small molecule and polymeric) materials, including mixed ionic-electronic conduction and actuation and utilizing their strengths for sensing/stimulation in biomedical settings. Our interests generally fall into the following categories, with applications ranging from probes for neural engineering to in vitro platforms and regenerative scaffolds.

Materials Design & Fundamentals

Sensors & Circuits

Applications
