Research Interests

Wearable technology has the potential to revolutionise healthcare by providing real-time data on the patient’s health. However, power supply is currently one of the key limitations of wearable biosensors. My PhD work investigates how we can use human body energy (i.e. motion and heat) to power these sensors. I am developing energy harvesting smart textiles and stretchable devices that can be seamlessly integrated into clothes. My current focus is creating triboelectric fibres that are reliable, washable and can be easily integrated with rigid electronics.

I am particularly interested in entrepreneurship and social impact as I believe that technology has an incredible potential to tackle global poverty and climate change.
