Shaurya Prakash's Biography

Shaurya Prakash, Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, The Ohio State University

Shaurya Prakash graduated with a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2007 and with a BSME from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville in 2001. He has been on the faculty at The Ohio State University since fall 2009 where he directs the Microsystems and Nanosystems Laboratory. His research focuses on developing Microsystems and Nanosystems for applications in healthcare systems, water purification, and renewable and alternate energy. His group addresses fundamental scientific questions while developing new technologies for problems important to modern societal needs. The research work is multi-disciplinary often bridging several fields including mechanical engineering, surface chemistry, and materials science. Prof. Prakash has published several papers including a recently authored book titled, “Nanofluidics and Microfluidics: Systems and Applications”, (Elsevier) and is the Microfluidics section editor for the Encyclopedia of Nanotechnology (Springer).

Over the past century, electrical or electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) has been used by chemists and biologists to study reaction rate kinetics, corrosion phenomena, battery aging, and tissue characteristics to name a few applications. EIS measures a current or voltage response of a system to an alternating voltage or current signal and records the response as complex impedance. The key idea is that the input is a small amplitude signal and therefore permits use of small-signal theory and linearization to analyze system response through data containing both magnitude and phase information.
