Sameer Sonkusale is currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Tufts University with a joint appointment in the department of Biomedical Engineering. At Tufts University, Dr. Sonkusale directs an interdisciplinary research group Nano Lab with research focus on micro- and nano- fabrication, sensors, instrumentation, biomedical microdevices, and flexible bioelectronics. He is the inventor of smart threads – a revolutionary flexible platform for implantable/wearable diagnostics and treatment. At the Wyss Institute, Dr. Sonkusale is exploring ways of making next generation of ultra-sensitive low-cost point-of-care diagnostics in collaboration with Walt Lab, and finding new bioengineering applications for flexible sensors and electronics.
Dr. Sonkusale received his MS and PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania. He has received several awards including the National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2010 and is an alumnus of the National Academy of Engineering US Frontiers of Engineering Meeting in 2015, the National Academy of Sciences Arab-America Frontiers Meeting in 2014 and 2016. Dr. Sonkusale is on the editorial boards of Scientific Reports (Nature publishing group), Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems (IEEE) and Electronic Letters (IET).
