2023 Materials Chemistry mid-career Prize: Peter Day Prize Winner
Professor Sohini Kar-Narayan, University of Cambridge
Awarded for advancing research in functional polymers and nanocomposites, and their application in energy, sensing and biomedicine using microscale additive manufacturing.
Professor Kar-Narayan’s research group are developing new materials and technologies that will have a broad impact on how healthcare is administered around the world. They have developed novel polymeric materials that can convert ambient vibrations and waste heat in the environment into electrical energy to power autonomous, wearable health monitoring devices. Sohini has worked closely with clinicians and surgeons to offer sensor-based solutions that can significantly improve patient outcomes. And her group have been developing novel point-of-care microfluidic devices to speed up diagnostics and drug screening.
