Joshua Levy wins AVS Outstanding Paper Award


Materials Science and Engineering Ph.D. student Joshua Levy won an Outstanding Paper Award at the American Vacuum Society’s 67th International Symposium, held online October 25–28, 2021. AVS is an interdisciplinary professional society that focuses on the science and technology of materials, interfaces and processing.

Levy’s main research interest is in micro-needle fabrication. He is advised by Professor Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR) and is a member of Ghodssi’s MEMS Sensors and Actuators Laboratory (MSAL).

He won the award for the best student presentation in the MEMS & NEMS Technical Group: "Thermally Released Spring-Loaded Platform for Capsule Based Drug Delivery and Sensing.” The paper describes a micro-needle platform being developed for an ingestible capsule that can precisely deliver drugs inside the human gut system. It is part of MSAL’s work in integrated capsule microsystems for in situ biosensing and diagnostics.
