Amy Shen's Biography



Amy Shen, Professor, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology

Amy Shen is a professor in Micro/Bio/Nanofluidics Unit at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Japan (https://groups.oist.jp/mbnu). She was a faculty member at Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering at University of Washington before moving to Japan in 2014. Amy's research is focused on fluid manipulations at small length scales, with applications in micro/nanofluidics and biosensors. Some of her recent work include micro/nanofluidic based immunoassays, novel micromixing phenomena, and localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) sensors for lab-on-a-chip devices. Amy is an honor member of Phi Kappa Phi and Pi Tau Sigma. Amy received Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award in 2003 and the National Science Foundation's CAREER Award in 2007. Amy was also a Fulbright Scholar in 2013.

Gold nanostructures are a highly attractive class of materials with unique electrochemical and optical sensing properties. Recent developments have greatly improved the sensitivity of optical sensors based on metal nanostructured arrays. We introduce the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) sensors and describe how its exquisite sensitivity to size, shape and environment can be harnessed to detect molecular binding events. We then describe recent progress in three areas representing the most significant challenges: integration of LSPR with complementary electrochemical techniques, long term live-cell biosensing and practical development of sensors and instrumentation for routine use and high-throughput detection. As an example we will demonstrate a novel refractive index and charge sensitive device integrated with nanoplasmonic islands to develop nano-metal-insulator-semiconductor (nMIS) junctions. The developed sensor facilitates simultaneous detection of charge and mass changes on the nanoislands due to biomolecule binding. A brief insight on microcontact printing to functionalize proteins on nanoplasmonic sensors will also be discussed. The developed nanosensors can readily be adopted for multiplexed and high throughput label-free immunoassay systems, further driving innovations in biomedical and healthcare research.
