Bonnie Gray's Biography

Bonnie Gray, Professor of Engineering Science, Simon Fraser University

Dr. Bonnie L. Gray is a Professor in the School of Engineering Science (ENSC) at Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Canada, a Fraser Health Authority affiliated researcher, and on the board of the Vancouver Medical Device Development Center (MDDC). Dr. Gray has over 140 peer-reviewed journal and conference publications, and has given more than 25 invited, keynote, and plenary presentations at international conferences, in the areas of novel materials and fabrication techniques for biomedical and microfluidic devices and systems; development of flexible and wearable microfluidic and biosensor technologies; point-of-care instruments; and chip-based biological cell sorting and trapping methods. Dr. Gray is a dedicated mentor and the 2014 recipient of the SFU Dean of Graduate Studies Award for Excellence in Supervision. Dr. Gray was the Chapter Chair for the Vancouver IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) from 2007-2017, and organizer of two mini-colloquia in 2012 and 2017. She is on the Editorial Board of the IOP Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering. She chaired the SPIE Conference on Microfluidics, BioMEMS, & Medical Microsystems from 2014-2024, and has been a member of the Program and/or Organizing Committees for various IEEE conferences, including the IEEE MEMS Conference, the IEEE Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference (NMDC), and IEEE NANO. She is also active in IEEE awards committees (IEEE NTC and IEEE EMBS); and EDI initiatives, including the IEEE Women in Electron Devices Committee (WiEDS) and a member of Women of Wearables (WoW).

We are surrounded by sensors in our daily lives. These (usually) small, inobtrusive devices constantly capture data about our environment, and what we see, hear, and do. Sensors form the foundation for analysis systems and are an integral part of every closed-form system. Many sensors seek to provide more continuity for health and well-being via constant monitoring of important health parameters. Similarly, other sensors seek to address the health of other systems, such as preventing failures in the power grid. Sensors as discrete components may be difficult to integrate into low-profile systems, such as textile-based systems, for development of smart clothing. These and other sensors systems could benefit from 3D printing or other additive manufacturing methods, via the integration of conventional printing materials with new functional (e.g., sensing or actuating) printed materials. Sensors could thus be easily tailored and printed to individual needs and more easily integrated with other printed components. This presentation focuses on development of wearable and other printed sensors that are designed directly on textiles, or fabricated using 3D printing methods for easier integration with fluidic housings. We discuss the current state-of-the-art, and present examples of integrated textile-based and printing-based sensors. We investigate how advances in flexible devices and systems (electronics, sensors, actuators, microfluidics) and additive manufacturing (e.g., printing) can be adapted to low-profile, non-obtrusive, and personalized sensor systems.
