Presenter Bio

Shweta is tenure-track Assistant professor at Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, Denmark and head ‘Printed Electronics Technology’ laboratory. Her research focuses on using printed technology route to enable flexible and bio-electronics. Through her research, she is trying to understand interaction of electronic inks on unconventional substrates like paper, textiles, polymers, medical plasters and biomaterials. She obtained her Master's at the prestigious Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) and later defended PhD at National University of Singapore (Singapore). She was a postdoc at the Energy Research Institute in Singapore, and later went to Singapore Centre for 3D Printing to pursue research in printed electronics before travelling to Denmark. Shweta is author of more than 40 peer-reviewed papers published in internationally renowned journals, books and conferences. She serves as the vice-chair of IEEE Women in engineering Denmark section.

Abstract: Printed Intelligence for Healthcare
Next generation healthcare devices will require embedded electronics to be reshaped and restructured. Moreover, there is also growing need for transient electronics that is bioresorbable and biodegradable. To this end, there is need for flexible, bendable and breathable electronics that is also biocompatible. This talk will focus on the need for novel electronics that is free of hard rigid components, and the landscape around it. I will talk about my research in this domain in building a new class of printable materials to put electronics on unconventional substrates and the printing routes. Printed electronics holds great promise for innovation in design, device architecture and added functionality. The talk will highlighted some key projects completed in the area of printed electronics with application in point-of care and healthteach solutions.
