Soniya D. Yambem is a Vice-Chancellor’s research fellow at QUT. Soniya is a device physicist with extensive experience in fabricating flexible electronic devices. Before joining QUT she worked on CSIRO’s flagship cluster project in flexible electronics at the University of Queensland. In her current role as a VC Fellow at QUT, Soniya is working with a team of highly acclaimed scientists from diverse fields such as tissue engineering, 3-D printing and organic chemistry to pursue her passion in developing the next generation of wearable electronic technology for medical applications. She has successfully established a world class organic electronics fabrication and testing facility at QUT.
Organic light emitting diodes as wearable light sources for various medical and biomedical applications. https://www.qut.edu.au/institute-for-future-environments/about/news/news?news-id=102564
Organic thin film transistors for interfacing electronics with the biological world and for applications in lab-on-chip technologies.
Electronic devices for non-invasive sensing technologies.
Organic electronics device laboratory
Soniya’s projects are focussed on organic/thin film devices for applications in energy and biomedical applications and therefore infrastructure or fabrication and testing of these devices are critical. After joining QUT, she worked on establishing a device fabrication and testing facility and benchmark it against performances for standard devices. The device laboratory at QUT is now fully functional for fabrication and testing of organic solar cells, organic light emitting diodes and organic thin film transistors.
