Jungwook (Jay) Paek

Assistant Professor

Electrical and Computer Engineering


Jay Paek is interested in developing microphysiological systems based on organ-on-a-chip and organoid technologies to study disease processes in the human respiratory and vascular systems. Previously, he was a research associate in the Department of Bioengineering at University of Pennsylvania, where he worked on in vitro modeling of human tissues and organs.

Prior to his postdoctoral work, Paek received his PhD in electrical engineering from Iowa State University, with his primary research centered on the design, fabrication and application of bio-inspired elastomeric microsystems. He is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Binghamton University (State University of New York).
