    Expertise Sought My group has developed an ultrathin and ultrasoft e-tattoo platform for the mobile sensing of physiological signals from any part of the skin. Currently, the wireless e-tattoo is capable of measuring all electrophysiological signals (e.g. ECG, EMG, EEG, EOG), seismocardiogram (SCG), blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse wave velocity, skin temperature, and skin hydration, out of which we want to extract heart rate, respiratory rate, core temperature and blood pressure. Our platform is also versatile for integrating new materials and devices. Therefore, here are expertise we are looking for:
    1. New materials for physiological sensing
    2. Physiological signal processing
    3. Data mining, machine learning and inference
    4. Flexible battery
    5. Low power IC



    Dr. Nanshu Lu is currently Temple Foundation Endowed Associate Professor at the University of Texas at Austin. She received her B.Eng. from Tsinghua University, Beijing, Ph.D. from Harvard University, and then Beckman Postdoctoral Fellowship at UIUC. Her research concerns the mechanics, materials, manufacture, and human integration of soft electronics. She is an IAAM (International Association of Advanced Materials) Fellow and an IEEE senior member. She has been named 35 innovators under 35 by MIT Technology Review. She has received US NSF CAREER Award, US ONR and AFOSR Young Investigator Awards, 3M non-tenured faculty award, and iCANX/ACS Nano Inaugural Rising Star Lectureship. She has been selected as one of the five great innovators on campus and five world-changing women at UT Austin. She joined the list of Web of Science highly cited researchers in 2020.
