Jin W. Choi came to Michigan Tech from Louisiana State University, where he served as the Mark and Carolyn Guidry Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering. Dr. Choi was ABET coordinator and graduate program advisor at LSU. He is the editor of Micro and Nano Engineering (Elsevier). He is a member of IEEE, ECS, and IMNES.

Dr. Choi earned his BS and MS in Electrical Engineering at Seoul National University in Seoul, Korea, and his PhD at the University of Cincinnati. He teaches on topics of circuits, electronic circuits, solid state devices, electromagnetic fields, micro/nanofabrication, MEMS/BioMEMS, sensors, sensor systems, and biomedical instruments. At LSU Dr. Choi was director of the BioMEMS and Bioelectronics Laboratory. His research interests include MEMS and BioMEMS, biosensors and bioelectronic devices, microfluidic devices and systems, lab on a chip systems, nanomagnetic particle separators for biomedical applications, and nanoscale transducers. In 2020, Dr. Choi and his collaborators received a US patent for a wireless implantable neural stimulator designed to help patients with neurodegenerative diseases control pain and improve quality of life.
