Through disparate architectures, emerging processes, and an understanding of material sourcing, I want to show that novel devices can avoid the violence (both social and environmental) that underpins the traditional semiconductor industry. To be effective, beyond CMOS devices will need to be tailored to their specific social, spatial, economic, and environmental contexts. Questions of energy and material platform then become unavoidable. I want to show how electronic fabrication is enhanced, rather than limited, by this fact.
I am a PhD student in the Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania where I am a GEM fellow, Presidential fellow, and a member of the nanorobotics lab advised by Marc Miskin.
