Dillon Acker-James

Graduate Student Researcher
Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences
Professor Kristofer S.J. Pister (Advisor)
Ph.D. 2024 (Anticipated)

Currently pursuing a doctoral degree after getting a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from UC Santa Barbara, where my coursework and research in the Mishra lab focused on fabrication and device physics. In graduate school I'm working on the building blocks for a platform that will be able to house various sensors and devices in a dirty envirnment, like in contact with the human skin, and even fully submerged in an aqueous medium.

After an internship with Apple and Iota Biosciences I am driven to make MEMS-powered medical devices, enhanced and controlled by on-...
