University of California San Diego
The session will mainly be covering the development of biofuel cell and printed batteries, from the basic concept, to strategies for incorporating stretchability in the design, to the optimization in performance and potential future research directions and commercialization market potentials for self-powered wearable electronics.
Speaker Biography (Lu Yin)
Lu Yin received his B.S in Chemical Engineering and continued as a PhD student studying Nanoengineering in University of California, San Diego. In 2014, he joined Prof. Joseph Wang's group with scientific interests focus on novel printed electronics and printable flexible material, specifically on the application in energy harvesting and storage. Recognized the potential of the printed conformal electronics for wearables, Lu is now also the co-founder of a new startup company Ocella, Inc. working on the commercialization of all-printed stretchable rechargeable batteries.

The University of California, San Diego (also referred to as UC San Diego or UCSD) is a public research university located in La Jolla, California. UCSD is the seventh oldest of the ten University of California campuses and offers over 200 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, enrolling about 22,700 undergraduate and 6,300 graduate students. Institutional rankings of UC San Diego have commonly ranked the university very highly. For example, ScienceWatch ranks UCSD 7th of federally funded U.S. universities, based on the citation impact of their published research. UCSD established the Department of NanoEngineering within its Jacobs School of Engineering effective 2007. This sixth department will cover a broad range of topics, but focus particularly on biomedical nanotechnology, nanotechnologies for energy conversion, computational nanotechnology, and molecular and nanomaterials. The Department of NanoEngineering's educational program will develop in phases, with plans to reach a steady state of approximately 20 faculty members and an enrollment of 400 undergraduate students and 120 graduate students.
