Shantanu Chakrabartty’s research explores new frontiers in unconventional analog computing techniques using silicon and hybrid substrates.

His objective is to approach fundamental limits of energy efficiency, sensing and resolution by exploiting computational and adaptation primitives inherent in the physics of devices, sensors and the underlying noise processes.

He uses these novel techniques to design self-powered computing devices, analog processors and instrumentation with applications in biomedical and structural engineering.

Using tooth sensors to detect disease

An interdisciplinary team of researchers from the School of Medicine and the School of Engineering & Applied Science is redefining the notion of a wisdom tooth. The team is developing technology that could someday be used to detect early signs of certain diseases in high-risk patients.
