My research lies at the interface of electronics, material science, bioengineering and additive manufacturing. I am using various printing technologies (aerosol jet, inkjet and bioprinting) to develop flexible and stretchable bio- and nano-electronic devices (bio-stimulant platform, drug delivery, sensors, strain gauge, antenna, transistor etc.) on inexpensive substrates namely paper, plastic or commercial plasters. My efforts are directed towards (i) developing printing processes to fabricate high-resolution, high-accuracy and high-performance bioelectronic devices; (ii) formulating materials to impart desired functionalities; and (iii) fabricating two- and three-dimensional multilayer interfacial structures with good mechanical robustness.

Biographical details

Dr. Shweta Agarwala got her B.Tech in Electronics & Communication Engineering from M. J. P. Rohilkhand University, India. She pursued her M.Sc from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore with specialization in microelectronics. She obtained her Ph.D in 2012 from National University of Singapore (NUS) on ‘nanostructured materials for dye-sensitized solar cells’. She joined Energy Research Institute, Singapore as post-doctoral researcher and worked on building library of lead-free and lead based perovskite materials. Later she joined Singapore Center for 3D Printing, Singapore to engage in printed electronics research.  

Her research vision is to achieve sustainability in electronics through soft and biodegradable electronic materials. Her research group is working towards building biodegradable material library with novel electronic functionalities. They are using printing route to enable flexible and bio-electronic device with applications in healthcare, wearables, smart textiles and soft robotics.

​She is IEEE senior member and Chair of Women in Engineering (WiE) affinity group, Denmark section, IEEE. Outside work she is a STEM advocate, avid reader and fitness enthusiast.
