Brief Description of Research Interest :

Andy Tay graduated from the NUS Biomedical Engineering Department and Global Engineering Programme with a First Class Honours in 2014. He was awarded the NUS Overseas Graduate Scholarship to pursue his PhD in University of California, Los Angeles. 

His research lies in neural engineering specifically using material science to enable neural stimulation and recording to access deep-tissue neurons. Andy is also keen in the synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles with uniform properties and has designed several platforms to evolve magnetotactic bacteria to generate magnetic nanoparticles with homogeneous properties.

Andy has won multiple awards including the prestigious Hemsley Fellowship from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, grant from Bavaria California Technology Center that funded his research internship in Germany and the Australian Endeavour Research Fellowship. 

With the NUS-Overseas Postdoctoral Fellowship, Andy is performing his post-doc training with Professor Nicholas Melosh in Stanford University to work on nano-probes for neurotechnology.
