EDA hosts research visit from University of Rome Tor Vergata

The School of Engineering and Digital Arts hosted a research visit from the University of Rome Tor Vergata for 4 months (from October 2016 to January 2017). The researchers, Erica Polidori and Cristina Caccami researched RFID based biological sensing and the integration of new battery technology into very thin label substrates to power monitors for the internet of things.

Erica and Cristina made great progress in the Communications research group as part of Professor John Batchelor’s EPSRC Foresight Fellowship in Manufacturing of new wireless biosensing technologies. They also worked on joint projects with Dr Maria Alfredsson and Dr Simon Holder in the School of Physical Sciences and Dr Campbell Gourlay in the School of Biosciences.
