About

Professor Joseph Andrews is jointly appointed in Mechanical Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering. He leads the Laboratory for Printed Electronics and Sensors (LPES). The focus of LPES is developing new printed electronic devices for interdisciplinary sensing applications. Novel electronic sensors are needed to usher in the coming age of more personalized medicine, data-driven diagnostics, and the “Internet of Things”. The inherit low-cost and flexibility associated with the fabrication technique motivates the use of printing for electronic sensors. The lab takes a holistic approach to the invention and design of electronic sensors with multiple layers of emphasis including ink development, print-process control design, and sensor validation. The impact of the work in LPES will manifest itself in many areas including biomedical research, harsh environment sensing, “smart” objects, and wearable devices.
