UC San Diego alumnus speaks at first Wearable Wednesday event in San Diego

Josh Windmiller won an honorable
mention at Research Expo 2011.
Josh Windmiller, a co-founder of San Diego startup Electrozyme and a three-time alumnus of the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering participated in a panel last Wednesday at the first Wearable Wednesday event in San Diego. (Check out the summary on Wearable World News.)

The panel also included Nikhil Jain, VP and Lead on the Qualcomm Toq smart watch and Daniel Obodovski author of “The Silent Intelligence.”

Windmiller earned his undergrad degree in electrical engineering, and MS and PhD degrees in NanoEngineering here at UC San Diego. Among his many activities, he participated, as a graduate student, in of Research Expo.

In 2011, Windmiller won an honorable mention for his NanoEngineering poster: Textile-Based Printed Bioelectronic Sensors.

Research Expo is the annual mega-poster-session for engineering graduate students here at UC San Diego.  Picture 200 engineering graduate students all in one ballroom, discussing their innovations with poster judges and attendees. There are also great faculty talks and a networking reception. (Watch a short promo video.)

You can attend Research Expo for just $100 (Half price for alumni, 2-for-1 admission for CAP companies) and meet 200 of the current crop of engineering graduate students with big ideas. Who knows what opportunities hold for you...after all, San Diego was recently ranked as the best place in the USA to launch a startup.

Windmiller is one of many engineering reseachers turned entrepreneurs at UC San Diego who received a boost from the von Liebig Entrepreneurism Center here at the Jacobs School of Engineering.

Electrozyme is currently incubating at EvoNexus, the San Diego incubator run by CommNexus.
