Dr Yang Zhen is also a senior researcher specislizing in Applied Mathematics at the Ural Federal University (Russia). The researcher gave two lectures to the IKBFU students and research staff from the FABRIKA Science and Technology Park. He spoke about the detection of biomarkers using MEMS micromagnetic sensors and the spheres of application of magnitic GMI sensors. According to Dr Yang Zhen, his research aims at designing a GMI sensor that can efficiently detect different elements, including biological ones, in liquids. These sensors can be used in medicine and biology.
