Sensory information input is crucial for all forms of intelligent life. Thus, the ability to capture, process and scale the environment information is critical to enable all forms of artificial systems to interact with their environment. This sensory feedback loop will play an important role for AI driven robots, nanoscale sensing systems, and other technologies that require human-environment-interactions.

The goal of my research program is to drive the creation of ultra-reliable and density scalable sensors and interfaces to sense the environment across length-scales. At the macro-scale, these sensor systems can be used for robots. At the micro to nano-scale, we envision building biotechnological tools for real-time sensing of mechanical information of cells and tissues. We are a multi-disciplinary group and welcome motivated students to create technologies that power the connected future.
