"In general, my research aims to overcome planarity constraint of conventional microfabrication techniques to enable the creation of novel functional devices. Overcoming this barrier has significant potential applications that enable the incorporation of functionalities, such as advanced optical, computation or sensing capabilities, to an otherwise passive three dimensional biological and mechanical systems. Microextrusion-based 3D printing is an additive manufacturing technique that represents an alternative approach which offers freeform fabrication capabilities. In this presentation, I will describe the synergistic integration of active nanoelectronic components with the versatility of 3D printing which enables the three-dimensional freeform fabrication of active electronics."
