Do Be So Sensitive:

Stretchy Sensors for Wearable Devices and Soft Robotics

*Why do some roboticists think octopi are so cool?
*How could we build a real Baymax?
*What are some limitations to making skin-worn sensors?


Kristen Dorsey, Assistant Professor of Engineering at Smith College, focuses on the fabrication and characterization of micro-scale sensors and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). She likes to understand “why things go wrong” by investigating device reliability and stability. Her current and previous work has had applications in actuation, gas chemical sensing, and inertial sensing.
