Ana Claudia Arias's research focuses on the use of electronic materials processed from solution in flexible electronic systems. Insights from such investigations have enabled the development of printing techniques that fabricate flexible large-area electronic devices and sensors. To this end, Dr. Arias directs the Flexible Electronic Devices and Systems Laboratory, which develops such systems for energy-related and medical applications. Prior to arriving at Berkeley, Arias managed the Printed Electronic Devices area and served as a member of the research staff at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), a Xerox Company. Arias is the recipient of multiple awards acknowledging her achievements in the field of electronic materials including receiving the NAE Gilbreth Lectureship, the FLEXI R&D Achievements Award, and being selected Bakar Fellow. She has a PhD in Physics from Cambridge University.
