Professor Bachman is the Principal Investigator of the MIDAS laboratory (Microelectronic Integrated Devices And Systems) at UC Irvine. His team focuses on the development of miniaturized integrated sensor systems for use in human systems, industrial systems, and consumer electronics. His team has pioneered technologies for at-home health care, miniaturized bionic and assistive devices, and products for telecommunications. Professor Bachman’s team works on research projects for government, foundations, and industry.


Professor Bachman is Director of the eHealth Collaboratory at Calit2-Irvine, a multidisciplinary center devoted to exploring the use of technology for empowering human health and well-being. In addition, Professor Bachman is Founding Director of UCI’s Bio-Organic Nanofabrication Facility, Founding Associate Director of UCI’s Integrated Nanosystems Research Facility, Program Director of UCI’s NSF IGERT LifeChips program. Professor Bachman teaches courses in MEMS, BioMEMS, optoelectronics, and engineering design. He is the author of over 10 patents and more than 60 peer reviewed journal and conference publications. Professor Bachman received his Ph.D. in experimental particle physics from the University of Texas at Austin. Prior to joining the engineering faculty, he spent ten years as a research physicist developing particle detectors and large scale analysis and simulation software systems for international physics collaborations.
