PI Pozdin

Dr. Vladimir A. Pozdin is an Assistant Professor in Electrical and Materials Engineering Departments with research focus is health monitoring sensors for humans, animals, and microphysiological systems. His background is in materials science, with specific expertise in organic semiconducting materials. Through his postdoctoral training and participation in the NSF Engineering Research Center (ERC) for Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST), he has developed expertise in designing and validating health monitoring platforms for humans. In addition, Dr. Pozdin was exposed to microphysiological systems as an ideal platform for biological sensing during his postdoctoral training.

Professor Pozdin’s research interests cover the following topics:

  • Optical sensors
  • Organic semiconductors
  • Wearable electronics
  • Sensing systems
  • Health monitoring
