Dr. Dmitry Kireev is an Assistant Professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, starting Fall 2023. Previously, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Texas at Austin. He is working on application of 2D materials (graphene, MoS2, PtSe2 etc) into fields of bioelectronics, neuroprosthesis, and wearable electronics. He finished his PhD work at the Institute of Bioelectronics (ICS-8) of Forschungszentrum Julich, Germany, working on graphene-based devices for bioelectronics. He is a recipient of a prestigious EMM-NANO scholarship and performed his master study in KULeuven and Chalmers University with majors in nanoelectronics.
In his professional journey, he is pursuing a visionary goal: to redefine the landscape of modern bioelectronics, particularly at the interface between electronics and the human body, through the innovative use of 2D materials. Dr. Kireev's expertise spans nanoelectronics, nanomaterials, and devices, complemented by a deep understanding of cellular neuroelectronics and wearables.
The on-going research endeavors aim to integrate distinctive two-dimensional electronic components (graphene and beyond) into the human body, laying the groundwork for transformative advancements in our fundamental knowledge and technological boundaries, ultimately enhancing our quality of life. Originating as a quantum physicist, Dr. Kireev's academic journey evolved into electrical engineering and nano-electronics during MSc studies, leading to delve into bioelectronics research for Ph.D. Subsequently, his postdoctoral research focused on the application of 2D materials in wearables, showcasing innovations such as graphene-based electronic tattoos for wearable sensors, a cuff-less blood pressure monitoring tattoo system, as well as biocompatible artificial synapses.
Prof. Kireev's long-term professional goal is to facilitate the convergence of 2D nanomaterials and bioelectronics, propelling the fields of mobile health and medicine forward. He envisions the development of integrated electronic circuits crafted with ultrathin and flexible 2D materials, seamlessly melding with living tissue; ultimately, laying the groundwork for deciphering the human brain, with the potential to transform and heal it or even contribute to the development of cyborgs.
