Current Work

High power density is desirable in most electronics applications. However, contemporary systems are limited in this regard, as traditional planar circuit boards require external cooling to manage their thermal loads. I am seeking to create devices with higher power densities by moving to a three-dimensional design with embedded thermal transport vias and cooling. My research focuses on combining heterogeneous additive manufacturing with microdevice fabrication and assembly to create compact, fully-integrated 3D electronic circuits.
