Our research interests include the design and characterization of miniature and micro-scale flexible sensors for wearable, healthcare, and soft robotics applications. Along with our research investigations, we strive to train undergraduate Smith students to undertake self-directed research projects.

The Picker Engineering Program at Smith College is an ABET-accredited, undergraduate only engineering program. In 2004, Smith College made history when 19 women graduated as part of the first class of engineers ever at the historically women’s college. The mission of the Picker Engineering Program is to impart the perspectives, knowledge and tools of engineering to our students, to prepare our graduates to be critical thinkers and resilient learners, to foster an inclusive engineering community that welcomes diverse perspectives, to generate new knowledge and engage our students in that process.
