In this presentation, Helen Tran will discuss her current research, which focuses on designing, synthesizing, and utilizing electronic materials with properties inspired by skin: stretchability, self-healability, and biodegradability. A survey of recent advances in this field will be reviewed, with an emphasis in medical applications.

Dr. Tran received her BS in Chemistry with a minor in Chemical Engineering from UC Berkeley in 2009 and completed her PhD at Columbia University in 2016 under the supervision of Professor Luis Campos.  She previously conducted research with Prof. Tsu-Jae King Liu (undergraduate, Electrical Engineering, Berkeley), Prof. Christopher Schuh (REU, Material Science, MIT), and Dr. Ronald Zuckermann (post-baccalaureate fellow, Molecular Foundry, LBNL). Dr. Tran is currently an Intelligence Community postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University in Professor Zhenan Bao’s research group.
