PhD graduate Wenjian Li from the University of Groningen will be able to conduct research at the California Institute of Technology for two years thanks to the
organized by the
Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO)
ZorgOnderzoek Nederland Medische Wetenschappen (ZonMw; Healthcare Research Dutch Medical Sciences)
. The NWO and ZonMw Rubicon programme enables talented, young researchers to acquire international research experience to help kick-start their academic careers.
Li's research concerns catching external body motions for inspecting internal body biomarkers.Wearable sweat biosensors can non‐invasively monitor metabolic biomarkers. However, their analysis accuracy is affected by body activities and they use rigid and bulky batteries, posing inconvenience and safety concerns. The researchers will create battery‐free wearable sweat biosensors with body motion recognition and body motion energy harvesting via the triboelectric effect.
Wenjian Li obtained his PhD cum laude from ENTEG, the Groningen Engineering and Technology Institute at the University of Groningen.
