Stephane Evoy received a B. Ing, and a M.Sc. from the Ecole Polytechnique of Montreal in 1992 and 1994, respectively, and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Cornell University in 1998. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Physics of Cornell University from 1998 to 1999. His research interests include the development of biosensors based on micro/nanomechanical resonators for applications including proteomics, diagnostics, and pathogen detection. These activities also include development of capturing nanoparticles functionalized with targeting agents such as antibodies and proteins. Other target applications also include energy generation and fluid viscosity monitoring.
