An overarching theme for this research is the development of novel materials, structures, and device fabrication methodologies, and the characterization and understanding of these systems to promote the development flexible hybrid electronic systems. The development of enabling technologies for low-cost, lightweight, multifunctional materials, structures, sensors, and devices will be important for a multitude of next-generation applications including wearable electronics and the reduction of size, weight, and power for lightweight, conformal and integrated electronics. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to, flexible and printed electronics, stretchable electronic materials and devices, next-generation energy storage, harvesting & control technologies, mechanically robust electronic materials, and functional 3-D printing. Reserach focuses on the development of fundamental structure-property-function relationships required to enable the further development of future flexible, 3-D printed, integrated, and conformal electronic systems.
