William Scheideler

Assistant Professor of Engineering

PhD candidate Julia Huddy talks about working in Professor Scheideler's SENSE Lab.


William Scheideler graduated with BSE degrees in electrical engineering and biomedical engineering from Duke University, and a PhD in electrical engineering from UC Berkeley. He then worked as a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at Stanford University. His research focuses on developing new materials and nanomanufacturing methods for high-performance printed and flexible devices, including low-power sensors and energy harvesting for hybrid electronics. He enjoys soccer, travel, cooking, and skiing.
