Joseph Greenspun, Ph.D. 2017

Electrical Engineering
Advisor: Prof. Pister
Research Interests: Human–computer Interaction (HCI), Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), Wearable Sensors.

BIOGRAPHY
Completed B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at Boston University, focusing in biomedical optics, in May of 2012. Started MS/PhD program in Electrical Engineering at UC Berkeley the following Fall with a concentration in MEMS under Kris Pister. Research efforts have been focused on a ring based wearable sensor mote (Ring GINA) capable of providing inertial data wirelessly to a host.

Self-Destructing Silicon [BPN744]
Funded under the DARPA Vanishing Programmable Resources (VaPR) program, this project
explores the fundamental issues associated with making wireless sensor nodes disappear after they
have achieved their goal. Near-term goals include electro-chemical dissolution of circuit wiring,
and XeF2 etch of the silicon substrate. The ultimate goal is to demonstrate a single-chip mote
capable of self-destruction on receipt of specific RF command or environmental change.
