TerraSwarm PI Ana Claudia Arias Serves as Advisor on Pan-European Collaborative Research Project

TerraSwarm PI Ana Claudia Arias will serve as a US Advisor on a five-million Euro pan-European collaborative research project to create new low cost, light weight, wearable devices by developing new organic semiconductor materials that can be printed on flexible film.  Funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, EXTended Model of Organic Semiconductors (EXTMOS) will use a new approach to develop the next generation of devices for the Internet of Things. Led by the University of Bath, the collaborative project includes twelve European academic and industrial partners. Possible applications include medical sensors, flexible displays, and low energy diffuse lighting.

According to her website, Ana Claudia Arias received her PhD in Physics from the University of Cambridge, UK before joining the University of California, Berkeley. Her research interests include the use of electronic materials processed from solution in flexible electronic systems. She uses printing techniques to fabricate flexible large area electronic devices and sensors. She is a co-investigator on the TerraSwarm HumanIntranet Project, a two-year project to develop a first-generation Human Intranet intended to boost human input-output performance as an open, scalable, form fitting platform.
