Samuel Lienemann conducted his bachelor’s and master’s studies in materials at ETH Zürich (Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule) in Switzerland. There he did his master’s thesis on ‘Soft high-density micro-electrode arrays with porous composite electrode coatings for neural stimulation’ at the Laboratory of Biosensors and Bioelectronics with Prof. Janos Vörös.
As part of his Master’s in materials he also spent an ERASMUS Semester in Stockholm at KTH, which inspired him to do his PhD in Sweden. After working as a research fellow at Harvard University, he joined Linköping Universitet on January 2018. Here, Samuel conducts his PhD studies in the Soft Electronics group of Prof. Klas Tybrandt at the Laboratory of organic electronics.
His research focus is materials development for stretchable electronics and the fabrication of devices for neural recording and stimulation.
