Robert is an Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering Technology (SOET) at Purdue University. His current research interests include physically flexible organic electronics with the application in biopotential monitoring and soft robotics, as well as neuromorphic systems, chemical sensors, smart (meta) materials and neuroscience. He completed his PhD at University of Denver, and his postdoctoral research at University of Colorado Boulder, University of Nova Gorica, Slovenia, and The University of Tokyo, Japan. His research highlights include fabrication of world’s thinnest, at 300 nm thin, organic electronics skin, fit with organic transistors and tactile sensors, motion artifact-free 300 nm thin surface biopotential (sEMG and sECG) electrodes, and polymer neuromorphic circuitry, a biologically inspired “brain”, implemented with organic transistors and organic memristors, capable of simple pattern recognition. He is a recipient of the 2021 Office of Naval Research, Young Investigator and the 2021 Ralph W. and Grace M. Showalter Research Trust Award.
