Speaker Biography (Veena Misra)

Veena Misra is the Director of the National Science Foundation Nanosystems Engineering Research Center on Advanced Self-Powered of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST). She is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University and also 2012 IEEE Fellow. She received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from North Carolina State University, Raleigh. After working at the Advanced Products Research and Development Laboratories, Motorola Inc., Austin, TX she joined the faculty of North Carolina State University in 1998. She has authored or coauthored over 150 papers in the areas of state-of-the-art low-power CMOS devices, power devices, alternative high-mobility substrates, nanoscale magnetics, and energy-harvesting. Dr. Misra was the recipient of the 2001 National Science Foundation Presidential Early CAREER Award, the 2011 Alcoa Distinguished Engineering Research Award, and 2007 Outstanding Alumni Research Award. She also served as the general chair of the 2012 IEEE International Electron Device Meeting.

Company Profile (ASSIST)

ASSIST is a National Science Foundation sponsored, multi-university Research Center developing wearable electronics for data-driven, personal health management. The goal is to enable long-term, battery-free sensing and correlation of physiological parameters and personal environmental exposures, so individuals can manage wellness (i.e. avoid illness) and so the scientific and medical communities can conduct large-scale, longitudinal health studies. ASSIST is building nanotechnology enabled, on-body energy harvesters, ultra-low power electronics, and techniques to embed sensors and devices into textiles and wearable form factors. The Center partners with industry to leverage and commercialize the federally funded research. Contact for more information.
