Sensors 2019 Travel Awards
As Editor-in-Chief of Sensors, I am pleased to announce the four winners of the 2019 Travel Awards sponsored by Sensors. The awards were granted to Dr. Leonardo Scarabelli, postdoctoral fellow of the University of California, Dr. Maria Cuartero, postdoctoral fellow of the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Dr. Filiz Yesilkoy, postdoctoral fellow of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and Dr. Itthipon Jeerapan, Ph.D. student of the University of California, San Diego. The award recipients will receive 800 Swiss Francs each to support attendance at any academic conference related to sensors
and sensing topics in 2019.
The research interests of the awardees are presented below:
- Dr. Leonardo Scarabelli: nanotechnology; neurochemistry; field-effect transistors; aptamers; neurotransmitters; neuromorphic; nanomaterials; nanobiotechnology, plasmonics, strong-coupling; rabi splitting; nanoelectronics; nanoscale technologies and materials science.
- Dr. Maria Cuartero: development of voltammetry (nano)sensors, light-driven smart sensors and submersible probes to monitor agricultural catchments.
- Dr. Filiz Yesilkoy: experimental and theoretical research on bionanophotonic devices for imaging-based sensing and spectroscopy; micro/nanoscale engineering for the development of miniaturized optical biosensors; novel nanofabrication and materials research for scalable, low-cost and high-throughput; manufacturing for biomedical applications; hyperspectral imaging optics.
- Dr. Itthipon Jeerapan: analytical chemistry; electrochemical sensors; spectrophotometric sensors; chemically modified field-effect transistors; electrocatalysts; porous materials; advanced materials for sensors and energy applications. Dr. Jeerapan’s current research focuses on wearable electrochemical sensors and advanced materials for energy (such as biofuel cells and supercapacitors), environmental, medical and electrochemical applications.
I would like to congratulate the winners and thank the selection committee for their excellent work in selecting the winners from such a large number of excellent candidate profiles.
