Annalisa Chiappone is a Material Engineer, Ph.D. in Materials Science from Politecnico di Torino; her doctorate, in collaboration with the “Centre Technique du Papier” in Grenoble, was focused on lingo-cellulosic materials for the development of reinforced polymer electrolytes for lithium batteries applications. In 2012 Annalisa moved to the Italian Institute of Technology(IIT), Center for Sustainable Future Technologies, as a post-doc researcher Until 2015 her research activity was mainly focused on polymeric materials and composites for energy or electronic applications, exploiting the […]
Kristina Shea is Professor for Engineering Design and Computing in Mechanical and Processing Engineering at ETH Zürich. Her research focuses on developing cutting-edge computational models, methods, and tools that enable the design of more novel and optimized engineered systems and products as well as to automate design and fabrication processes. Currently, the focus is on methods for 3D and 4D printing as well as computational design synthesis. Kristina, could you let us know about your background the work you are doing? […]
Johanna Schwartz is graduate student in chemistry who has a BA in chemistry and biology. She worked on various research projects, from synthesizing more efficient hydrogen fuel cell polymers, improving the synthesis and purity of cuprous oxide, and even identifying and characterizing thin phytoplankton layers in the Sargasso Sea. For her Bachelor’s thesis research, she worked with Dr. David Myers at Simon’s Rock, focusing on natural product synthesis. Specifically the research focused on the synthesis and biological testing of antibiotically and antifungally active […]
Laura Hockaday Kang attended Cornell University in the Biomedical Engineering Department. During that time she was awarded a GAANN fellowship, a Morgan fellowship, and graduate research NSF fellowship. She became a research assistant in Jonathan Butcher’s Cardiovascular Developmental Bioengineering Laboratory in 2008, and joined the heart valve bioprinting project. Laura is presently working as a postdoc in Germany at the University of Muenster/UKM, in the Institute of Cell Dynamics and Imaging. Laura, could you detail your first experience with 3D […]
