Dr. Shweta Agarwala was born in India and got her B.Tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering from M. J. P. Rohilkhand University, India in 2004. She pursued her M.Sc from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore with specialization in microelectronics. She obtained her Ph.D. in Electronics Engineering at National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2012 on 'nanostructured materials for dye-sensitized solar cells'. She joined Energy Research Institute, Singapore as post-doctoral researcher and worked on building library of lead-free and lead based perovskite materials. Later she joined Singapore Center for 3D Printing, Singapore to engage in printed electronics research.
Currently, she is a pursuing her research on direct-write and 3D printing methods for flexible electronics, bioelectronics and bioprinting at Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, Denmark. Her research is highly multidisciplinary with application in flexible devices, wearables, smart packaging and healthcare. Her research road-map employs 3D printing route of aerosol jet, inkjet and bio-printing to fabricate new-age devices on unconventional substrates namely textile, plasters, bandages, paper and biomaterials.
Outside work she is an avid reader, STEM advocate and committed fitness enthusiast.
