- Conformable Decoders
David Sadat is a Research Specialist and Laboratory Manager with the Conformable Decoders research group at the MIT Media Lab. He holds a B.S. and M.S. degree in mechanical engineering with an emphasis on materials science and cleanroom device microfabrication. As a graduate student, his research focused on using novel nanomaterials for capacitance-based devices towards improved ultrasonic imaging. Over the last decade, he has worked as a Thin Films engineer in the semiconductor and microfabrication industry in both high-volume manufacturing (HVM) and research and development (R&D) environments. In this capacity, he has led efforts in practical implementation of lean manufacturing techniques and concepts, including Kaizen, 5S, key performance indicators (KPIs), and management by objectives (MBOs). Now, as a research staff member in the Conformable Decoders group, David is excited to pursue cutting-edge research into novel microfabricated devices to create seamless, hybrid, self-powered conformable sensors for continuous monitoring of longitudinal health patterns.
