Dr. Amer’s main goal is to create a way of communication between biological systems and electronic devices. His current research focuses on transducing ionic signals into electronic signals by studying mixed conduction pathways applied to organic electrochemical transistors (oECTs). Dr. Amer investigates biologically compatible materials such as conjugated polymers in both p-channel and n-channel configurations. He characterizes materials using different techniques such as Transmission Electron Microscopy, electrochemical absorbance spectroscopy, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. Dr. Amer aims to correlate material properties (morphology, structure, and electrochemistry) with the device performance (transconductance, mobilities, On-Off ratios, and switching speeds).
