Research Advisor: Prof. Ali Javey

BETR Research Thrust: Wearable and Flexible Electronics


Noelle received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology in 2020, where she worked on electrochemical biosensing systems in the Nanofabrication Group. She also held an internship at Velodyne LiDAR, where she worked on verification for lidar receiver ASICs. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, as a NDSEG Fellow under the supervision of Professor Ali Javey in the Laboratory for Materials and Device Innovation. Her research interests include microelectronics and bioelectrical interfaces.


Human eccrine sweat and other accessible body fluids such as interstitial fluid (ISF) and breath vapor offer a window into rich molecular information currently neglected by commercial wearable physical sensors. Development of robust, well-packaged devices measuring chemical composition and flow rate using roll-to-roll screen printing and laser cutting will enable studies at scale for big data collection. We envision that wearable biosensor technology coupled with population studies and data mining techniques will ultimately generate algorithms to supplant traditional reactive, episodic healthcare with predictive and proactive diagnostics.
