Prof. Jan Vanfleteren




JAN VANFLETEREN obtained his PhD in electronic engineering from the University of Ghent (Belgium) in 1987. He is currently a senior engineer and project manager at IMEC (CMST group) and is involved in the development of novel interconnection, assembly and substrate technologies, especially in the field of flexible and stretchable electronics. In 2004 he was appointed as part time professor at the University of Ghent. He is a member of IMAPS and IEEE and (co)-author of over 150 papers in international journals and conferences and he holds 8 patents / patent applications. He was co-ordinator of EC-FP6-IP-SHIFT, and currently co-ordinates IWT-SBO-BioFlex, BELSPO-TAP2-SWEET and FWO-Neuroprobes. As a project manager he is involved in many more collaborative projects on wearable and implantable sensor and electronic microsystems.

PRITESH DAGUR, PhD, has obtained in 2004 the degree of Master of Science (Chemical Sciences) at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, Karnataka, India. Since 2004 she was working on her PhD at the same institute, under supervision of Prof. S. A. Shivashankar, MRC (Materials Research Center), IISc, on the subject: "Atomic Layer Deposition Of Metal Oxide Thin Films For Dielectric Applications And Themogravimetric Studies Of Metalorganic Precursors For Chemical Vapour Deposition And Atomic Layer Deposition". She will most probably obtain her PhD in January 2009. She joined CMST in September 2008 and has since then worked on the development of wearable sensors for epileptic seizure detection. She also has performed preliminary work on the development of porous silicone membranes.

RIK VERPLANCKE obtained his degree of Ms. Electr. Eng. from the University of Ghent in 2007. Since then he is working towards a PhD at IMEC/CMST. The subject of his research is the development of technology for elastic fluidic microsystems with integrated electrical stimulation and sensing electrodes and electronic circuits. In the frame of this work he has co-operated on an informal base with SCIL

FABRICE AXISA received the engineer degree in microelectronics at Ecole Centrale de Lyon (France) in 1996 and Ph.D. in biomedical systems, in 2004. He currently works for IMEC/CMST and is focusing on stretchable electronics, sensors and actuators technology and applications for biomedical systems and smart textiles. Together with Pritesh DAGUR has also performed preliminary work on the development of porous silicone membranes.

WIM CHRISTIAENS graduated from Ghent University as an electrical engineer with majors in Micro- and Opto-Electronics in 2004. He is currently finishing his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering at CMST (Centre for Microsystems Technology), ELIS department at Ghent University. His research is focused on the embedding of active and passive components in polyimide substrates. From Feb.1, 2009 on, he will be appointed as a full-time exploitation manager and business developer at CMST for the valorisation of the developed CMST technologies on wearable and implantable flexible and stretchable electronics and sensor circuit technologies and applications.
