Dr Tommaso Busolo

Translational Prize Fellow, 2021-22

Translational Prize Topic: Wearable and reusable pH sensor integrated with a fluidic system for continuous vaginal infection monitoring
75%

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 goal is creating triboelectric yarns that are reliable, washable and can be easily integrated with rigid electronics. 

PhD Supervisors: Dr. Sohini Kar-Narayan – Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy and Dr. Sanjiv Sambandan – Department of Engineering
