Joseph Wang is a Distinguished Professor and Vice Chair of Nanoengineering at the University of California, San Diego in the US. His research looks at the rapidly developing field of nanobioelectronics which aims to integrate nano- and biomaterials with electronic transducers. He took some time out from the Faraday Discussion on Electroanalysis at the Nanoscale, held at the University of Durham, UK, at the beginning of July, to talk to Rebecca Brodie about his research.
