Sandeep Surya is currently working as Postdoctoral fellow at Sensors Lab, CEMSE, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).

Education and early career

Sandeep was a Research Associate at Microsystems Technology Research Unit, CMM, Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), Trento, Italy. He received his Ph.D degree from IIT Bombay in 2016 and finished his undergraduate in 2008 from JNTU, India. He was member of a group working on developing a stand-off explosive detection technology using OFETs and nano-electro-mechanical-sensors. He was also a member of the team e-sanjeevani, who developed a project on Telemedicine which also earned wide recognition and was adjudged 1st in many national level symposia.

Research Interests

Sandeep is interested in developing sensors, memory devices and building flexible electronics.
