NanoEngineering PhD student receives $10,000 award

Amay Bandodkar, a Ph.D. student in the lab of nanoengineering professor and chair Joseph Wang, has won the 2016 Young Chemist Award from Metrohm USA, which comes with a $10,000 prize.

Says the Laboratory-Journal:
Amay’s research focuses on developing next generation of wearable sensors that, unlike today’s wearable devices, possess the power to continuously monitor physiologically relevant chemicals directly on the human body in a completely non-invasive fashion. He is developing specially engineered printable inks for fabricating smart printed devices that can be easily stretched and self-heal when mechanically damaged. These inks are then used to develop non-invasive wearable electrochemical devices for various healthcare applications.
 During his time in Wang's laboratory, Bandodkar has worked on a wide range of projects, including:

The work has been covered by ABC News, the Huffington Post, Yahoo News and Popular Science, among many other news outlets.
