Lei Kuang is involved in developing a handheld point‑of‑care diagnostic system for the rapid detection of infectious diseases. As a member of a highly multidisciplinary team, his work focuses on delivering a comprehensive biomedical device that involves not only the embedded hardware, firmware, and software development, but also the implementation of algorithms specific to sensor calibration and readout, closed‑loop control system for temperature regulation, and DNA detection. Lei Kuang is conducting research on the next generation of Lab‑on‑Chip platforms for high‑throughput CMOS ISFET arrays studying for a PhD at Imperial College London. His research aims to introduce a novel framework that leverages artificial intelligence to improve sensor performance. Prior to his research journey, Lei Kuang received MSc degrees in Embedded Systems from the University of Southampton, and in Analogue and Digital Integrated Circuit Design from Imperial College London, both with distinction. He was the winner of the Hertha Ayrton Prize for the best MSc project for the 2018/2019 cohort.
