Swaminathan Rajaraman, Ph.D., is an assistant professor at the University of Central Florida (UCF) with joint appointments at the NanoScience Technology Center and at BRIDG/ISIMM. Dr. Rajaraman is well published in micro/nanofabrication, biomedical engineering, and wearable micro-electro-mechanical (MEMS) devices. He is a co-founder of an advanced biotechnology company, and holds 13 patents/applications. Dr. Rajaraman's dual appointment with UCF and BRIDG/ISIMM enhances an established coordination of efforts to increase advanced manufacturing research, development, education, and workforce for sustained growth in the United States.
Dr. Rajaraman's role with ISIMM and BRIDG includes the development of proposals related to life sciences and biologics-based sensors. He has and continues to represent BRIDG/ISIMM at MEMS and sensors events in a business technology development role. With his dual appointment with UCF, one of ISIMM's core university partners, Dr. Rajaraman will help leverage the latest technologies, materials and tools with industry, academia, and government and looks forward to integrating education and manufacturing processes by developing a teaching lab course for the development of MEMS sensors at the newly opened state-of-the-art fabrication facility at NeoCity.
We are grateful for the opportunity to have these two strong innovative leaders as part of the ISIMM team to help secure success for U.S. advanced manufacturing.
