Prior to joining Oregon State in 2014, Dr. Johnston was founder of Bialanx, developing a portable IC-based platform for label-free biosensing applications. He was previously a graduate student and postdoc with the Bioelectronic Systems Lab at Columbia University, where his research focused on monolithic integration of piezoelectric materials and devices with CMOS integrated circuit substrates. In 2012, Dr. Johnston worked as an associate for a New York City venture capital firm investing in early-stage life sciences companies, with a focus on technology assessment for medical devices.

Dr. Johnston was co-founder and Manager of Research at Helixis, a Caltech-based spinout developing instrumentation for real-time DNA amplification, from 2007 until its acquisition by Illumina in 2010. He is also a co-founder of Chimera Instruments, which designs high-speed electrophysiology amplifiers for biophysics research applicatons. His research focuses on the integration of sensors and CMOS integrated circuits, lab-on-CMOS platforms, bioelectronics, stretchable circuits and sensor systems, and bio-energy harvesting. He is currently an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems and of the IEEE Open Journal of Circuits and Systems
