Thanks to a unique and innovative Washington partnership, first responders have a new tool for the pandemic. Stations across the region have begun receiving University of Washington-designed, locally manufactured systems to decontaminate the high-demand face masks needed to protect them from COVID-19 while carrying out their essential duties. See the entire story here. Ben Sullivan… Read more »
Andrew Bender defended his PhD thesis titled Sample Preparation for Point-of-Care Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing of Bloodborne Viruses. Congratulations Dr Bender!
Jonathan Posner was recently named Mechanical Engineerings Richard and Victoria Harrington Professor for Engineering Innovation in Health. He directs the Engineering Innovation in Health (EIH) program for the UW. Entering its eighth year, EIH has become a rallying point for connecting health care experts with problem-solving engineering students and faculty.
Arif Abdullah joined our lab as a postdoctoral scholar. He will work on on Soft MEMS Tactile Sensors. This project focuses on the development of an instrumented hand for inspection and handling of sensitive devices such as explosives. This project will enable next-generation tactile sensing and interaction of objects, both visible and hidden, for robot… Read more »
David Juergens was awarded an Honorable Mention selection in the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. Among over 12,000 highly competitive applicants, David was selected as a top tier student with enormous potential to become a scientific leader and advocate. Congrats!
The University of Washington in Seattle, Washington seeks to fill a full-time post-doctoral research associate position. The position focuses on the development of soft MEMS tactile sensing skin using liquid metal strain gauges that can sense both dynamic normal and shear forces for increasing the perceptual abilities of robotic manipulators in highly sensitive environments.
