Dr. Mason research utilizes mixed-signal integrated circuits and microfabrication to addresses challenges in microsystem development for biochemical, neural, and environmental sensing applications. Current projects include high-resolution, low-power, bioelectrochemical interrogation circuits; adaptive chemical sensor interface circuits; post-CMOS fabrication of electrochemical sensor arrays; and implantable mixed-signal integrated circuits for signal processing of wireless neural recordings. Dr. Mason is a Senior Member of the IEEE, an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems (TBCAS), and a General Chair of the 2011 IEEE Biomedical Circuits and Systems Conference. He teaches courses in the area of microelectronics and biomedical engineering, including VLSI design, microprocessor systems, and biomedical instrumentation.
