Professor Sir Richard Friend holds the Cavendish Professorship of Physics at the University of Cambridge and is Director of the Winton Programme for the Physics of Sustainability. He has pioneered the physics, materials science and engineering of semiconductor devices made with carbon-based semiconducting polymers. His research group was first to demonstrate using polymers efficient operation of field-effect transistors and light-emitting diodes. Professor Friend has also been directly involved in the process of commercialisation of this technology, forming several spin-out companies from the University of Cambridge. details
Emre Ozer is a Principal Research Engineer and joined Arm Research in 2005. He received his PhD in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University in 2001. His research interests are energy-efficient CPUs, fault tolerance, machine learning for embedded systems, bespoke hardware design and flexible electronics. He has published over 50 international conference/journal articles and holds over 25 US patents. He is currently the project coordinator of an InnovateUK funded project PlasticARMPit, developing bespoke ML compute engines on plastic that are tightly coupled to plastic e-nose sensors. details
Mark D. Poliks is Empire Innovation Professor of Engineering, Professor of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and Director of the Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing (CAMM) at the State University of New York at Binghamton. In 2006 he established the first research center (CAMM), to explore the application of roll-to-roll processing methods, including large-area photolithography, to flexible electronics and displays, with equipment funding from the United States Display Consortium (USDC) and the Army Research Lab. His research is in the areas of industry relevant topics that include: high performance electronics packaging, flexible hybrid electronics, medical and industrial sensors, materials, processing, aerosol jet printing, roll-to-roll manufacturing, in-line quality control and reliability. He leads the New York State Node of the DoD NextFlex Manufacturing USA. He has authored more than one-hundred technical papers and holds forty-eight US patents. He received dual undergraduate degrees, with honors, in chemistry and mathematics from the University of Massachusetts and a Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut in materials science and engineering. details
