  • Research Assistant

PhD student

Irmandy received his M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from the ETH Zurich. Throughout his graduate and undergraduate studies,  he was involved  in several companies and institutions (StudioXO for Haus of Gaga, Atmel, and KAUST) and in areas such as fashion/wearable technology and consumer electronics, from designing mechatronic dress, spacesuits, to developing stretchable electronic patches and fabrics. His work has been featured in various news and media, including FastCompany, Quartz, IEEE Spectrum, Nature ME, TechCrunch and Wired Italia and presented in MIT Museum and the World Economic Forum.

His current interests are the fabrication, manufacturing, and interaction techniques of unconventional electronics for ubiquitous sensing, actuation, and energy harvesting,  at times exploring the creative interplay between art, design, science, and engineering. The integration of soft electronics into common materials results in various applications ranging from health and well-being, rehabilitation, human-computer interfaces,  interactive media, to immersive-built envir… View full description
