Microelectronics and Sensors
Electrochemical (amperometric and potentiometric sensors for pH, Na+, K+, glucose lactate), physical (temperature and strain sensors), impedimetric (bioimpedance and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy), optical (photodetectors and photoplethysmography) and electrophysiological (ECG, EMG, EEG) sensors. Design and fabrication passive mixers and pumps and fluidic channels with integrated sensing capabilities for point-of-care analysis of biosamples. Fabrication methods for flexible/stretchable electronic devices, centered mainly around interconnect and sensor technology, elastomeric and plastic materials, conductive polymers and composites and liquid metals. Electrical (IV characteristics, Van der Pauw conductivity measurements, impedance spectroscopy) and material characterization methods (SEM, XPS, AFM, EDS, Raman spectroscopy, FT-IR).
Software Design with focus on human-machine interaction and user experience. Software architecture for extendable, modular and maintainable solutions with focus on performance, low fault tolerance, scalability and reliability, using software architecture patterns (microservices architecture, serverless architecture, event-driven architecture). Software security assessing performing architecture risk analysis, threat modeling, security control design analysis and managed penetration testing.
Developer Operations for planning product’s iteration development (using the Agile Software Development Life Cycle), testing and deployment to the production environments, deliver product updates and monitor log software performance.
